Notes on Hyacinthus orientalis 'Woodstock'

"A unique hyacinth, literally 'bring-you-up-short' vibrance on a stalk with glowing purple-red flowers and a fabulous scent."

Bought these as a present


I made up pots of these to give as gifts






Unusual jewel colour, very striking. Bought & planted up in a pot layered with other bulbs for a Christmas present and they were superb when they flowered.






My favourite hyacinth. Fragrance that stops you in your tracks, lovely colour, good 'doer'.




Good looking


I have grown this form before and was very taken. The bulbs arrived strong and very healthy looking and I put into bowls with crocus for the patio and several in bowls for indoors. All have grown well and are the best scented that I have seen (and smelt). When those grown indoors have finished blooming I will then plant them in the garden.

I will be buying these again


These are without a doubt the healthyest bulbs that I have bought for a longtime. Although this is the first year that I have used Crocus, I wish I had known about them sooner. I have just recd. them so not planted as yet but have planted this variety before. They are striking planted among bronze and blue/mauve/purple crocus.

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
