    How to Plant Peter Stuyvesant Hyacinth Bulbs

    About Hyacinth Bulbs

    Hyacinth originated in Turkey. In the 1500's, traders brought them back to Europe. Later, they were introduced into the United States. Hyacinth bulbs are perennial fall planted bulbs and they are quite easy to establish provided you are careful to remember a few very basic steps.

    When to Plant Hyacinth Bulbs

    Bulbs should be planted before the beginning of winter. Plant the bulbs a few weeks before the ground freezes. This gives the bulb time to establish a root system. And by planting over a period of a few weeks it is possible to have flowers for two or three months.

    Where to Plant Hyacinth Bulbs

    First, choose a sunny to partially shaded site that contains well drained soil. If you don’t naturally happen to have quality soil, we recommend amending what you do have with rich top soil available at any gardening center. In any case, be sure to avoid planting your hyacinth bulbs in any area that is susceptible to standing water throughout the rainy season. Standing water is the death knell of hyacinth bulbs, and typically the only factor that will prohibit them from growing.

    How to Plant Hyacinth Bulbs:

    For best results with hyacinth bulbs, plant each bulb roughly 6 inches deep with the pointed end facing up. A typical spacing is about 6 inches apart, but feel free to plant more compactly for a denser effect. For the biggest plants and blooms, place a little bulb fertilizer in the hole during planting. Once planted, water the hyacinth bulbs fully in order to help the root system become fully established as fall progresses.

    How to Care for Hyacinth Bulbs

    Hyacinths are mid-spring bloomers and are particularly noted for a long blooming cycle lasting usually a month or more. During late summer or fall as the plant fades and dies, remove unwanted foliage. If left undisturbed, your hyacinths should repeat their colorful and fragrant spring performance year after year. You may dig up the bulbs after a couple of years then separate and replant them.
