final hyacinths of the forcing season

The final hyacinths of the forcing season. I'm not sure if those two on the right are going to make it but then I wasn't sure the two in the amethyst and green vases on the left would a week or so ago but they've grown well.

Sadly this hyacinth is completely bent over, as some do every year, but I have no idea how to correct it or if it is preventable

The Woodstock hyacinths did not do very well this year. They hardly grew out of the leaves. They do bloom early and they are a nice colour but I'm not sure they're worth it if there are not any reasonable flowers produced.

first hyacinths in bloom December 2020

The weather has been so warm this year, the hyacinths are very early. I usually worry if I'll have any hyacinths in bloom for Christmas because they haven't started blooming, instead this year I worry if they've bloomed too early.

the hyacinth stems are quite yellow when they first come out of the cellar but they green up after a few days in the daylight

the next two hyacinths are quite advanced, I usually bring them out of the dark before they get to this point but I found a box of hyacinths behind another box that I hadn't noticed so a few of them should have come out sooner
