Planting and growing instructions: Buy Hyacinth Bulbs | Hyacinth Jan Bos | Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

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.
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.
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 later 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!
