Hyacinths are some of the most versatile spring-blooming flowers. Their fabulous, colorful blooms bring a sweet fragrance to the garden, pairing well with almost any other spring-bloomer. Hyacinths grow well in pots and can be chilled and forced to bloom indoors in the colder months.
For gardeners in frost-free areas, or for those who simply canвЂ™t wait to see their Hyacinths bloom in the spring, forcing bulbs is an easy, fun gardening solution. Bulbs such as Tulips, Hyacinths, Crocus and Allium require a chilling period to grow and bloom. We have some helpful tips and tricks that we have learned from forcing bulbs in our test gardens at American Meadows and in our own homes.
