Budding hyacinths will flower in a few days if you put them in a good light with plenty of water. They are not too fussy about temperature, but the warmer it is the more water they need, and the faster they grow.
Keep turning the plants so that they grow upright, rather than in the direction of the sunlight. In a very warm room you may find that staking the plants helps keep them growing straight.
Keep the soil moist all the time by watering every day.
When the flowers are over you can plant the bulbs in the garden where they will flower again next year.
As long as you keep the roots moist whilst they are growing hyacinths are extremely reliable. If for any reason your bulbs fail to flower please do let us know immediately.
According to Greek mythology hyacinth got its name when a young boy named Hyacinth was killed by a discus hitting him in the head during a game. A hyacinth sprang from the cut in his head as he lay in the arms of the god Apollo
