I love spring bulbs….Crocus, Daffodil, Tulip and especially Hyacinth. Probably my Dutch roots that will never go away. Hyacinth flowers have such a lovely smell! When you grow them indoors your room will be filled with irresistible smell. This time of the year you can buy hyacinth bulbs in pots in your garden center…..but soooo expensive! These are the moments I miss Holland. But why not grow them yourself!
You can easily force hyacinth bulbs on water.
What do you need:
- Hyacinth bulbs. Buy some nice hyacinth bulbs. You can get them in many different colors.
- Special hyacinth glass…You need a glass vase with a compartment at the top what fits a bulb.
What to do:
Start at the end of autumn halfway April till the end of May when you can buy bulbs everywhere.
Place the glass in a dark cool place. For example a dark spot in the garage or shed. Temperature roughly 5-10 grades Celsius. No Frost!
