Too Many Hyacinths In A Bowl

It's not an uncommon event in my experience - you could 'pot them on' carefully and they would be fine, but instead you could  get some sphagnum moss from the florist, or even rake some out of the lawn if you have enough, and put it over the compost and bulb roots to hide the eruption and the bulbs will flower and all will look fine
