While Christmas shopping I found a small 'kit' to force a hyacinth bulb. I've always wanted to try this. I snatched one off the close out sales shelf and brought it home.
Not much to it. A box with the simple instructions on back, the 'special' vase and a hyacinth bulb.
It says not to have the bulb touching the water.
I tucked it to the back of the refrigerator. I'll need to check that it has water and watch for a sprout so I can bring it out.
The box said it will be weeks (10-12) before it is ready. I guess people who know what they're doing with these already have them going. That's OK. For the sale price, I can have it bloom a bit later than most.
