Season of Interest
Plant your hyacinth bulbs in a spot that boasts full sun or partial shade. As with all spring bulbs, hyacinths sprout, bloom, and start to fade before deciduous trees fully leaf out, so you don't have to worry about too much shade from nearby trees. Aim to give the plants at least six to eight hours of sunlight a day.
Water frequently and if in posts ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.
Best Growing Conditions
To grow hyacinths indoors, the bulbs need to be chilled for 6-10 weeks in a cold location such as refrigerator, garage or basement. Some hyacinths have been pre- chilled and you can plant these straight away. Plant the hyacinths in fall; choose a shallow container so that the tips of the bulbs show about 1” above the surface of the soil. Water lightly and keep in a dark location for 8-10 weeks until the shoots are about 2” high. Then move into a cool bright spot where the blooms will soon appear.
