Growing Hyacinths in Water Vases

The hyacinths flowers. It took them about two months just as said in the instructions. I followed the instructions and wonder why my flowers don’t look as fantastic as those on the package 😉 Mine are not as colorful and strong and have not as many flowers on the stem. Anyway, it was interesting to follow the development. I think I will try some daffodil bulbs in the vases next. If there are bulbs to buy this early of the year. 

Growing Hyacinths in Water Vases

About a week ago or may be a bit more I bought two packages of hyacinth bulbs in glass vases. I said to my husband, look at these, my mom and aunties used to grow hyacinths in water vases in the 50’s and 60’s. I have to buy a couple. I hope I will be able to grow them. Back home I put them in a kitchen cabinet to put in the vases the next day. But, oops, I had forgotten all about them till today when I happened to open the cabinet. I now have “planted” them, one pink and one blue, according to the instructions on the packages plus that I found more about how to succeed with them on the net. Unfortunately, they will not bloom in time for Christmas but beginning of next years will be nice too.
