What You'll Need To Plant Your Bulbs
When to plant Hyacinth Bulbs:
For blossoms in March and April, sow hyacinth bulbs outdoors in early autumn. If you desire blooms by Christmas, plant prepared bulbs in September. This allows 10-12 weeks for optimal root and shoot growth.
How to plant Hyacinth Bulbs:
For successful hyacinth bulb planting, start in autumn. Choose a sunlit area with moist, free-draining soil. First, clear weeds and aerate compacted soil. Enrich with organic matter like well-rotted compost or manure. Plant bulbs roughly 10cm deep, spacing them about 8cm apart.
