Always loved to potter in the garden but only really in the last couple of years, have I embraced it by redesigning our space and growing from seed

Hyacinthus orientalis

I’m going to say #fadedbeauty as these are now 4th year bulbs! Thought I’d give them a go, but looking a little tired and not doing their “thing”, but I can’t bin them so giving them a chance 😁

@hayleyja Is it neccessary to dry them off etc? I planted mine outside after it had finished flowering and it's popping through now. I'll give it a try your way might get a better result 😊

I've forced my bulbs, by using the water method. These bulbs will have to go outside in compost next year, as you can't force them twice. They are beautifully scented flowers 😃😃 perfect for winter days @ankur1406

It's is, just be careful to "ballast" then as no compost to grab into. I've added decorative pebbles to mine today too 👍@susanhumphrey @Pushkraj

That's a better idea. I have some nice glass bowls. Do you use compost or just water 💦 under the pebbles?
