Image 4Image 5

One of our most favourite spring-flowering bulbs, Hyacinth produce trendy and chic dwarf flowers which are highly fragrant and highly successful. These easy-to-grow bulbs come in three different sizes, all sourced from the best quality bulbs available, unlike cheaper less-reliable bulbs available elsewhere. When measuring bulb-size for Hyacinth we refer to the circumference of the bulb in cm, as detailed below. Available to order online from July through to December.

Bedding Size 14/15cm circumference bulbs - Packed in quantities of 5 or 10, our first sized bulb is great value-for-money and is the ideal choice for mass-planting in beds and border, where the flowers are of a good size but are not too heavy to require nay support.

Prepared indoor-flowering 15/16cm circumference bulbs - When growing indoor flowering Hyacinth, this excellent bulb size produces larger sized flowers that can bloom indoors as early as February. Specially treated for indoor flowering, they are a great way of bringing the flowering period indoors.

Top-size 17/18cm circumference bulbs - Our largest sized Hyacinth bulbs, which are a little more expensive than 14/15cm bulbs, they are the perfect choice if you are looking for enormous sized flower heads to really pack a punch. Great for patio containers and borders where they are unrivalled for performance.

Growing Hyacinth bulbs outdoors for spring colour and charm is easy and produces highly rewarding results. On arrival plant bulbs at approx. 10cm deep and 10-12cm apart. Hyacinth bulbs excel in well-drained soil, and we recommend you add some compost to your soil for added performance benefits. Once planted, cover the bulbs firmly with soil and protect in winter from extreme frosts. Leave bulbs undisturbed and they will provide years of pleasure, representing superb value for money.

Growing Hyacinth bulbs indoors is a spectacular way of bringing the colour and fragrance of these beauties inside the house, but only do so using specially prepared indoor-flowering bulbs, not standard bedding and pot bulbs. Add some crocs to the bottom of a pot/container, add in fibre and then plant the bulbs at approx. 10cm deep. Add extra fibre up the neck of the bulbs and press down firmly. Place the pot/container in a cool, dark cupboard for 6-8 weeks and water when required, ensuring that the soil is not allowed to dry out. Once shoots have established, bring the pot into direct sunlight and the sit back and enjoy the rewards of your labour.
