Hyacinths

Hyacinths

We have selected our own favourite varieties, chosen for their richness of colour (and scent, of course!). We normally use them in containers in their first year, preferring to plant them out in subsequent years, when the flowers have reverted to a more informal form, suited to naturalistic plantings. For a truly 'natural' look, the roman hyacinths (hyacinthus romeinse) are also deserving of garden space and are often hard to come by these days.

Hyacinths usually begin flowering in late March, right through April, with many continuing to bloom into May.

Note that hyacinths are the only bulbs that we do not offer in top size, due to the need to individually support the flower heads produced by the largest bulbs - life really is too short for this!

Hyacinth 'Pink Surprise'
New in 2017 Pink hyacinths had never been a favourite with us, until a cheerful spring bouquet of them, mixed with cream-edged pink tulips, brought about a change of mind. The pink was a prettier shade than other pink hyacinths we had seen before and investigation showed that it was a new variety. So here it is - 'Pink Surprise' - the lovely, light fondant-pink we were looking for. Bulb size 15/16 Pack...
