Sweet And Short

We are now enjoying the sweet scent of hyacinth flowers in our home.  My bulb is blooming.


However, the blooms are competing for space with the leaves.  I don't know why the stalk is so short.


At least is smells good.

  2. My outside hyacinths do that. I bet a green house would make them bloom better. The smell is so wonderful that comes from those blooms.

  5. I see you got a hyacinth bulb and forcing vase. Aren't they fun! Sometimes I get short ones but usually mine are bigger. I've had trouble this year with my paperwhites. It's almost March and I've yet to get a bloom -- my first batch were duds -- they didn't even grow!

  6. I like the fact it's a bit stumpy; gives it character!

  7. I planted 2 ceramic pots of hyacinth bulbs 9 in each, set them outside and guess what one broke in 21 pieces. I forgot no hole no drainage they both broke. Carrel planted the bulbs in the flower beds. Too cold for me, we may have to dig them up and move them in the fall. I planed to have one on the outside table and one on the dinning table. Next year pots with holes.
