  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any well-drained, moderately fertile soil (for container-grown bulbs use two parts John Innes No.2 compost to one part sharp grit)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Treat yourself (or a friend) to one of these super-easy kits, and in a few weeks you'll be able to enjoy colourful flowers - and their deliciously sweet perfume. 'Blue Jacket' has been awarded and AGM, so it's one of the best, and once they have flowered, they could be planted outside in the garden where they will come back year after year.

    This gift set includes a lined ceramic pot, compost, 3 hyacinth bulbs and growing instructions to create a beautiful display.

    These 'prepared' hyacinths have been through a sequence of cold treatments, which triggers the growing process. This means they tend to flower much earlier than 'unprepared' hyacinths, and they are mainly grown as indoor plants, where their strongly scented flowers bring real 'wow' factor. Delft Blue has porcelain blue, star-shaped flowers that crowd the upright flowerspike in spring, filling the surrounding air with their sweet perfume.

  • Growing instructions: Using gloves plant bulbs close together (but not touching), into the pot containing bulb fibre, so their tops are just above the surface of the compost. After potting up, they will need a cool, dark period, which will encourage root growth, so pop them into a black bin liner and leave in the shed or garage. Check them occasionally to make sure the compost does not get too dry, and water them when necessary. When the growing shoot is about 5cm tall, take it out of the bag and bring the pot inside to a cool room away from direct sunlight until the leaves turn green. Afterwards they can be moved closer to the window, but if possible keep them away from central heating radiators. After they have finished flowering they can be planted outside in the garden, where they will flower again (in March or April) the following year.Hyacinth bulbs can cause a natural skin irritation. Please wash hands after handling. After purchase store in a cool and dry place.

Plan ahead with bulbs

One of the great things about gardening is being able to look into the future with enthusiasm, and part of that is planting now for next spring. A gardener knows, when handling papery brown bulbs, that these insignificant little things will produce early
