Plant at least 10cm deep and approx 10-12cm apart. For planting in the garden, beds, or borders it is best to plant in well drained soil which has been dug to a good depth. For indoor cultivation of prepared or top sized hyacinth bulbs you should plant in fibre, and keep in a cool dark cupboard for 6-8 weeks. Water when required to ensure that the fibre is not allowed to dry out. The cooler they are stored, the longer the bulbs will last. They can be taken into the room and placed in daylight only when the roots have been well established and buds appear.
Choose top sized hyacinth (17/18cm) for pots or when you want enormous flower heads, or go for some bedding size bulbs (14/15cm) if you need hyacinth for general garden planting outdoors where the flower size is good but not too heavy to need support . Take some care to protect from strong frosts in the winter if planted in the garden.
