Talkback: How to plant hyacinth bulbs

I love the perfume of Hyacinths. I buy many in the spring just to keep the lounge smelling of the beautiful fragrance. When they have done thier magic i retire them to the garden and dig them a hole where they slowley fade till next spring.

Every summer we get invaded with these tiny tiny little black flies that are about 2mm. They cover the windows and even get inside the double glazing. We have to shut all the windows and curtains. Some make their way in the house and get everywhere. They are all over the pc the walls windows, its drives us mad.

No one seems to know what they are all about. Im quite near to farmland and have asked my neighbours if they all suffer the same fate and they do but not as bad.

Its usually July, August time they appear and it lasts for about 3 weeks.

Any clues?

Hi im Cia and new to the forum. I love gardening but i never ealised their was so much to it.

Last November i repotted a large Purple Sensation Alluim. I took it from one container and put it into another more steady pot. However now ive found i have two. The bulb i replanted is coming on a treat but the pot i took it from has somehow produced another. How is this so?
