Description

Hyacinth Outdoor Pink Elephant has beautiful bright pink flowers that are so dainty. Highly scented. Ideal for containers in the house or garden and they work really well in the front of borders. A truly spectacular flower. Plant in containers close to the house to enjoy the fragrance and flower florets.

Hyacinths bring a splash of colour in so many different shades to the Spring garden and are so easy to grow.

Hyacinths grown outside can be left undisturbed for a few years.  After feeding and flowering let the flowers and leaves die back, remove the dead foliage and flowers and mulch well.

Cultivation Instructions:

Hyacinths are ideal for growing in borders and containers, particularly close to the house so as you can enjoy their fragrance as you pass them by. Cultivate soils well before planting and add humus matter to poor soils. Grow in well-drained, moderately fertile soil in the sunny areas of the garden. They will also tolerate partial shade for a one-off display, but flowers in the following years will not be as dense. Fully hardy in the ground, but can be frost tender in containers if you have a cold garden or we experience a very cold winter.

Bulb performance and flower quality usually declines in the years after planting. So, for the best displays, replace each year. You can however leave them in the garden and enjoy the smaller flowers which will still make attractive displays. Keep bulbs well fed during the leaf and flower stage, let the leaves die back, remove the dead foliage and flowers and mulch well.

Care tips:

Plant individually in 9cm pots for growing on in a sheltered place, such as a cold frame. In spring, select those about to bloom at the same time and pot up together for indoor enjoyment.

Grow with other fragrant varieties such as Narcissi Bridal crown

Ideal foods are well rotted manures, tomato feed and bone meal.
