Remember those bulbs I started…the first 2 hyacinth are in bloom! I wish you could smell the amazing sweet, almost lilac-y scent. I’ve placed one in my bathroom. In this small space, the heavenly smell fills the whole room. Ah – Spring!
My lack of the proper vases didn’t seem to matter much and improvisation of the juice glasses worked. Remember the new vases I ordered from Amazon when I discovered the vases I ordered last Fall were too large? Well, they are too small for a bulb! Now I have vases that are too big and vases that are too small. This shouldn’t be so hard. When I find a good, affordable source, I’ll be sure to share it.
The bulbs I put in dirt in a pot are moving along much more slowly. They are just beginning to show signs of progress. My advice? You can force in bulb vases and have blooms in about 4 weeks if they are in a sunny, warm window. I think the potted ones will take the full 8-10 weeks to bloom.
Are you forcing any flowers inside? Which ones and what’s working for you?
