Doesn't everyone love the smell of a hyacinth? I do, and my favourites are of the blue variety.
Back in September, after buying a few plants from a catalogue, I acquired a free bag of bulbs, and back in October I placed three on the top of old jam-jars, filled almost to the rim with water.
From this ...
... to this.
I lost one to rot, but the remaining two are now in flower, and smell bloomin' lovely.
