Each year I either force some hyacinth (this requires a little planning) or buy some in late Winter so I can enjoy them when I really need it (like when the snow keeps falling and I find tears streaming down my face). After they’ve bloomed, I plant the bulbs in my garden for years of enjoyment.
I also start seeds on the radiator and then they live in the closet under lights for about 6 weeks or more. I’ve just started introducing them to outdoors for a few hours each day to get them ready for transplanting. Can’t wait.
