Hyacinth bulbs have been cultivated in the Netherlands since the 16th century. Its cultivation is limited by the special coarse-grained, calcareous and humus-like soil that is required for a good size of hyacinth bulbs. In the Netherlands, this soil is only found in the dune region in North and South Holland. The hyacinth is especially popular for the wonderful scent that it spreads and announces spring. The hyacinth bulbs bloom for three to four weeks. There are about twenty-five different hyacinths and they are classified by color. There are blue, purple, red, rose, yellow, orange and white varieties. The flowers of about two centimeters form dense flower clusters of fifteen to twenty centimeters in length.
This mix of hyacinth bulbs likes a well-permeable, not too heavy, fertile garden soil. After two years you should replace the hyacinth bulbs. It is difficult to keep hyacinth bulbs in your own garden in good condition every year for re-blooming. You get a guarantee of beautiful and effective flowering by planting new hyacinth bulbs every year. In severe winters it is best to place a shelter over the planting bed (leaves, peat, branches). Fertilizing is not necessary.
This mix of hyacinth bulbs also does well in a pot or container. It is important that the hyacinth bulbs should be planted in well-drained soil.
Protect the hyacinth bulbs, planted in pots and containers, against frost by means of bubble wrap, straw, leaves and the like.
