Soil Type

Bulb Fibre/Sandy Loam

For indoor cultivation of prepared or top sized hyacinth bulbs you should plant in fibre, and keep in a cool dark cupboard for 6-8 weeks. Water when required to ensure that the fibre is not allowed to dry out. The cooler they are stored, the longer the bulbs will last. They can be taken into the room and placed in daylight only when the roots have been well established and buds appear.
Prepared Hyacinth can be in flower as early as Christmas. These Hyacinth are specially treated in a way that makes them very suitable for early forcing. They should be planted or boxed directly upon arrival. Best planted in bulb fibre in containers with drainage holes, or jars with a narrow neck, ensuring the bulbs sit about a quarter of an inch above the water. The plants roots will dangle in the water, but not the acutal bulb itself. For best results a cool windowsill is ideal, then the flowers will not extend or lean too far out of shape. Check the fibre every week or so to check the compost has not dried out.
