What a lot of doom and gloom! I've got a huge clump of pink hyacinths under my apple tree after planting out just three flowered blooms ten years ago - they produce more and more blooms every year, a tad smaller I agree, and like all the spring bulbs they get fed with tomato feed after blooming until the foliage dies down. The only downside is that the dying leaves are a magnet for snails....but then you know where they are and can pick off and dispose regularly!
The blue ones get planted around the basking hippo my fun-loving son gave me some years ago, to represent water, and cause a laugh or two from visitors.
