hyacinths bulbs

Posted: 26/10/2014 at 20:15

If they're last year's bulbs I'd put them in the garden and buy some prepared ones for the vases.

I think the prepared ones have been chilled so they think they've had winter therefore it must be spring and time to grow.

Last year's bulbs are still waiting for winter before they start growing. They won't get that indoors.

Does that make sense? If not blame the wine

I like cerinthe, I think the colour will go well with Queen of Night tulips.

But given the  current speed  of the cerinthe  growth I fear they'll be over before the tulips are up

Looks like a euonymus, maybe E, japonicus

I'll have a poke on google images and check if there are other species similar

I've planted mine. In pots. If they don't make it? Tough

I only mention this because they're under a few plants of cerinthe which I think is called honeywort

Some hyacinths have been 'prepared' to  flower early indoors. It doesn't matter what you grow them in.

They're usually clearly marked and cost more.

Help with identification
