Prepared bulbs(for forcing) can be potted up in August or September, and will flower before Christmas.
Untreated bulbs will flower later if planted in succession between August & October, bringing them into the warmth as they are ready.
After flowering forced bulbs can be planted outside in March or April where they will recover and flower again.
Bedding Hyacinths can be planted out approx 150mm deep and 150mm apart in September/October.
Lift bulbs after the leaves have died back or turned yellow and store in a dry shaded place until planting time
