Aida will be singing the praises of spring! The royal purple florets are just bursting with fragrance and ready to start the spring party.
Oh, the intoxicating scent of Hyacinths! These bulbs come in a virtual rainbow of colours and are a sure sign that Spring has finally arrived. Hyacinths are early bloomers that send up a single stalk covered in starry, fragrant florets. They make wonderful cut flowers that will literally fill a room with fragrance. They like a rich soil with lots of organic matter in it but they also want dry feet. This means that the soil directly underneath the bulbs should drain well. If yours isn't a well draining soil, make the hole for the bulb a bit deeper and mix sand or gravel into the bottom of the hole - your Hyacinths will be pleased!
