A soft and peachy display of perfumed blooms puts Hyacinth 'Gypsy Queen' bang on trend, with the current ‘must have colour’ for your garden! Its unusual shade of apricot sets this variety apart, making it incredibly eye-catching when planted en masse in beds and borders. Team it with bright Tulips for eye-popping spring containers on the patio, or simply them in a planter indoors, where they will fill home with their rich fragrance.

10 hyacinth bulbs (kc1322)

Grow hyacinths in moist, fertile well drained soil in sun or semi shade. Plant hyacinth bulbs approximately 10cm (4") deep and at a distance of 8cm (3") apart.


To grow hyacinths for indoor displays, plant them 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 (44°F) for around 6 weeks. Water bulbs only when necessary in order to keep the compost moist. When the growing shoots reach a height of 3cm (1"), move the containers to a cool bright position indoors.

Water container-grown hyacinths with care. Avoid over wetting the compost or allowing it to dry out. After flowering, indoor displays can be planted out doors where they will bloom the following spring. Hyacinths that are planted outdoors are virtually maintenance free. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
