As I planted onion sets today in the garden, I enjoyed the scent of the hyacinths. After enjoying hyacinths forced to bloom in the house during the winter, I put the bulbs along the edge of the vegetable garden. So far, I've had good luck with the bulbs settling into the garden after being forced inside. The past few years, I've had purple hyacinths. They are really looking good back behind the cages where this year's tomatoes will be planted. You can see three with no blooms. Those were this year's forced bulbs. The were pink. After the flowers faded, I cut off the stems and put them out here. It's nice to have a little color in the raised vegetable beds during spring planting.
