How to Grow Hyacinths Indoors

There is nothing on a cold winter days than the sight of garden bulbs blooming indoors.  Not only are they lovely to look at but the fragrance is outstanding.  So, here are a few tips to help you make this adventure a success.

When looking for bulbs to purchase make sure you get the correct one for indoor growing.  They are called forced bulbs not standard. Forced bulbs have been through a process to ensure they will flower in mid winter.

Know in advance that they won't plant in a week once they are planted so plan ahead.  Select  a garden container for your bulbs.  We recommend a shallow bulb pan, azalea pot or even a garden saucer if it's deep enough.  The bulbs roots are not that big so they don't need a deep planter for success.

Keep in mind that wide planters are also best.  You can group them together and create a wonderful display.  Remember that even thought a mix color arrangement is lovely the bulbs may bloom at different times so it's best to stick with one color for forcing.

Get a good potting mix.  Fill the planter and set the bulbs on the soil in the arrangement you desire. Fill around them but not over them. Keep them watered at all times.  Place the flower pots in a dark cool place. A garage, shed, under a staircase, a basement.  Or place a cardboard box over them so they stay dark.  Check once a week and make sure they are watered.

After a few weeks you should see green shoots.  Over the next few weeks these will grow longer.  When it reaches 2" high its time to bring them indoors.  Being exposed to warmth and sunlight will make them grow wonderfully. Display in a sunny window and the smell will surround you in wonder.
