The hyacinth has been celebrated since antiquity and remains an exceedingly popular plant, deservedly beloved by many British gardeners. These bulbs allow you to experience the loveliness of the Pink Pearl hyacinth, which flourishes upwards with glossy bell-shaped petals of vivid pink, while also producing a heavenly fragrance.
Prepared hyacinths are intended to be grown indoors and, if planted in September, can flower from mid-December onwards. They can be grown with hyacinth glasses or any container if using bulb fibre.

Intended for indoor growing
Can be grown with hyacinth glass using only water
These bulbs can be grown in almost any container using bulb fibre enriched compost. When planting, the neck of the bulb should be left protruding just above the surface of the soil. Water, then place in a cool, frost-free spot at a maximum temperature of 9ºC / 48ºF and check weekly. After 10-12 weeks, when the flower bud is through the neck of the bulb, bring into a warm, light room at approximately 18ºC / 65ºF. Keep moist but do not over water.
They can also be grown in specialist hyacinth glasses using only water. Ensure that the base of the bulb does not touch the water. The roots will form and eventually grow down into the water. The glass still needs to be kept in a cool, dark spot. Once the flower bud is through the neck of the bulb by approximately 5cm (2in) follow the instructions as with pot-grown bulb.
Hyacinth bulbs can cause a skin irritation so use gloves or wash hands after handling.
