Hyacinth have been grown for centuries for their fragrant spring flowers.
Perennial. Plant bulbs in groups in autumn around 8 inches (20 cm) below soil surface.
They prefer fertile, well drained soil in full sun.
Let foliage die back naturally after flowers have faded.
** we have a variety of blue, white and pink flowering hyacinth planted in the Woods.
There is also a nice mixed cluster of pink, blue and white blossomed hyacinth planted in the front flower bed along the railway path of the back patch.
The potted hot pink flowered hyacinth bought for the Mr’s Valentine 2019 present has been planted out to join this pre-existing cluster for even more colour in the spring of 2020.
