How to Plant Hyacinth Flower Bulbs
Hyacinths are prone to frost damage, so be aware of the general rule for timely planting (outside). Plant the Hyacinth bulbs at a depth of 10 -12 cm (4/5 Inch) in well drained soil. It is required to give a mulch!
Break up the topsoil into finer soil (remove clumps) and replace the soil gradually over the newly planted Hyacinths. Water well. Fertilise in early spring with some organic fertiliser on top when the sprouts become visual. Cut off the old brown flower stems by means of a sharp knife.
