Hyacinth Gipsy Queen
Hyacinth Gipsy Queen Hyacinths with Gipsy Queen Gipsy Queen Hyacinth with Persicea Gipsy Queen Gipsy Queen in vase
A beautiful and popular peach orange Hyacinth that can be grown for a colourful indoor windowsill display at Christmas or potted up outdoors for Spring flowering. They can be planted in pots on their own or mixed with other spring bulbs or as a field of hyacinths covering the base level of your borders. Hyacinth Gipsy Queen reached a modest  height of about 20-25cm (8-10") tall. 

Planting Hyacinths outdoors in the garden

  • If planting in the garden, find a position that is in full sun or partial shade. 
  • Hyacinths like to be planted in well-drained soil that is moderately fertile.
  • Bulbs should be planted in the Autumn for flowering in March - April.
  • Plant your bulbs 10cm (4") deep and 7-8cm (3") apart.

Planting Hyacinths outdoors in containers 

  • If planting in containers, use any good potting medium including a mix of 2 parts John Innes No.2 compost mixed with one part grit.  Make sure your pot is free draining.
  • Plant your bulbs 10cm (4") deep and 7-8cm (3") apart.

Planting Hyacinths indoors for Christmas Flowering

Our specially 'prepared' (heat-treated) bulbs can be grown indoors for Christmas Flowering.
  • Use a moisture-retentive but free-draining soil especially if the container has no drainage holes. The simplest compost to choose is bulb fibre. 
  • It is not necessary to feed the bulbs after planting. 
  • Wet the fibre or compost first and place a layer in the bottom of the container. 
  • Place the bulbs on the fibre or compost and fill the gaps with more fibre or compost allowing for the tips of the bulbs to be just showing above the soil level. 
  • Allow about 1-2cm (1/2") between the soil surface and the container rim to allow space for watering.
  • To force flowering for Christmas: After planting the bulbs, they need a dark and cool period to encourage the development of a good root system. Place in the garage or under stairs cupboard. Do this until you see your hyacinths have developed and are established. Place you container in your desired position around the house. Perhaps on your dinner table for a lovely Christmas Centre piece!
