Hyacinths Planted

Last weekend I picked up some hyacinth bulbs. In March the fragrance from a couple of pots made the new house smell wonderful for weeks. It’s easy to force them to bloom all winter. Just grow the bulbs in a refrigerator for 12 weeks. Yeah, sounds funny, but I’m serious. You only need a temperature of 50 F or so. Today, I picked up a mini fridge and a wine cooler. The wine cooler has a glass door and light. It looks perfect.

There are 23 pots. I potted up all of them, but most are sitting outside. Every 2 weeks I’ll put in 5 more. On 12/9 I should have the first 5 blooming. Then for 2 months afterwards; till about the end of February – beginning of March.
