those buds look like magic beans
some of the hyacinths in bloom
some of the hyacinths in bloom downstairs
surprisingly some muscari in bloom! why those 2 (and another has buds)?, none of the ones in the vases have buds
Everything happens very quickly now. Suddenly I have a lot of hyacinths in full bloom. I still have over 20 vases in the cellar whose bulbs are not ready to come out. At this point I'm not sure they ever will be.
I love those fat buds
I love the purple colour of this hyacinth.
The small-ish openings on the x-shape vases are ideal for the smaller supermarket bulbs.
some other supermarket bulbs in the 2 vases to the right
4 of these 5 Blue Eyes hyacinths are good, 1 of the bulbs was a failure
The bulb bowl on the left has City of Bradford (Peter Nyssen) looking good and just coming into bloom. The bowl on the right has Caribbean Dream, one bulb I have removed as it's rotten (on the right shows the mould underneath), of the remaining bulbs, 1 is blooming, 1 has nice buds, 1 is doing very little.
Delft Blue in the bowl to the right
these supermarket hyacinth bulbs came in an assortment so can only identify the bulbs as white (bulbs are white as below in the middle) or pink/blue shades (purple bulbs below)
