Plant some patriotic hyacinths in jubilee year and start your spring with a fantastic show of red, white and blue. Majestic Hyacinth 'Union Jack' comes in a mix of bold colours with a powerful fragrance. These hardy bulbs are perfect for dotting throughout the front of borders. Save a few to pot-up into containers for a bright windowsill indoors! Bulb size 14/15cm. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 8cm (3").
For an attractive indoor display, plant Hyacinths in containers of bulb fibre or potting compost with the tip of the bulb just visible above the soil surface. Position them in a cool garage or other well ventilated, dark position at a maximum temperature of 7°C for around 6 weeks. Only water bulbs when necessary to keep the compost moist. When the growing shoots reach a height of 3cm (1") move the containers to a cool bright position indoors.
