Dutch Hyacinth

Large spikes of powerfully scented, wax-like flowers are crowded onto sturdy stems in spring.

With its exquisite and powerful scent, Hyacinth's are a worthy addition to any spring garden. Being a classic cottage garden plant they will steal the spotlight in spring when their wax-like blooms appear. The white flowers of this lovely variety will add a sense of calm amongst the bright yellows and golds of Daffodils and spring flowering shrubs. Hyacinths are equally at home in a mixed border as part of a informal planting scheme, in more formal settings when teamed with clipped evergreens and mingled with Tulips and other spring bulbs, or grown in containers placed near a door or seating area where the powerful, sweet scent can be enjoyed over a number of weeks.

A versatile spring bulb with an upright shape and heady scent that works well in containers and small spaces.

Plant Care & Advice

Hyacinths grow best in a sunny position and in well drained soil. Either remove the pot and plant into well prepared soil by digging a hole twice the size of the pot or simply plunge the pot into a border or larger container and remove it once the flowers have been enjoyed. Allow the flowers and leaves to die back naturally. Plant bulbs during autumn in holes 2-3 times the depth of the bulb. Because Hyacinths die back after flowering (known as 'summer dormant') they require very little watering but keep containers watered in dry weather whilst they are flowering. Hyacinths will slowly increase each year but the bulbs are best replaced after several years as the plants will produce smaller flowers over time.
