In early November, I put six hyacinth bulbs into a brown paper bag and put the bag into the refrigerator. Hyacinth bulbs need a chilling period to bloom. I labeled the bag clearly so no one would eat the bulbs. :-)
Today, I pulled the bag out of the refrigerator and inspected the bulbs. Each has a sprout starting to show.
I gathered two hyacinth bulb vases, a couple of other vases that will work because they have 'necks' and a couple of bud vases which I filled with glass pebbles. Each vase is filled with water to just below the hyacinth bulb.
Now, to put them in a sunny room (but not in the sun) and wait for growth, roots and blooms.
