I have mine in a tray of pebbles and always make sure the pebbles are watered, this creates a micro-humid climate and it thrives on my west facing windowsill

Echinacea problem

It's more than likely the manure, it is very rich and can burn plants roots very easily especially when its new.

For indoor displays, you need to buy the prepared bulbs. Pot them up with the top third of the bulb showing and put them somewhere dark for about 8-10 weeks by which time they should have rooted. Make sure to keep the soil consistently moist.

Dont bring them out of darkness until you see green shoots coming from the bulb.

Outdoor Hyacinths are easy, just plant them 2-3 times the depth of the bulb and they will come up year after year in about April time

Maybe some of the Miracle-Gro has got on to leaves and burned them?

Yeah its a comma, pretty rare sight here but they do stop by every now and then.

Nettles grow everywhere here as lots and lots of woodland nearby so we tend to get lots of torties
