How to Care for Hyacinth indoors



Everyone appreciates a "breath of spring".  It's Easter week and many spring blooming plants will be available.  I saw these pink hyacinths when I visited the florist, Flowers and Plants Etc.

Even a brief stop-in to a florist cheers me up!  These sweet bloomers have the most heavenly fragrance that will lift the spirits of any room you temporarily have them in. When I've had them, I transfer them to the garden when their blooming is done indoors. They do return every spring!

You can send indoor plants and floral arrangements almost anywhere in the world from this florist:  Flowers and Plants Etc


Care Instructions--
  • Some direct sun will keep them the longest indoors. A sunny window is best and will provide some coolness.
  • Water thoroughly as soon as the top of the soil is dry. They will last about a week or so inside. 
  • They will bloom the next year if planted in your garden shortly after blooming, or give to a gardening friend that can plant it their yard, if you live in a zone that supports this bulb plant..
