Re: HYACINTHS


Chris,
I just buy the same hyacinths I'd put in the ground - that's why I
refrigerate. One more note about forcing without soil for those who have not
done it before.  Hyacinths are top heavy when in bloom so if  they aren't
well balanced they can tip over (the bulb & flower, not the glass).  So it
is helpful to turn the glass occasionally if you are depending on a light
source that is from one side.  There are at least 3 sizes of bulbs generally
offered for sale, I usually stick with the medium size.

Kitty
