Planting wood hyacinth

It is recommended to plant hyacinth bulbs in the fall at 5/10 cm deep.

Form clumps of several dozen bulbs to create spots of color in your garden.

Pruning, caring for bluebells

Once the foliage has turned well yellow, cut it short. Not before, because the plant needs to see its leaves turn yellow to build up its reserves for the next flowering.

Wood hyacinth should normally multiply on its own over the years.

To know about the bluebell

Very pretty perennial which supports the freshness and the shady character of an undergrowth very well.

The hyacinth of the wood is ideal for a bed of heather earth plants or a planter not too exposed.

The plant sows itself, just don't cut the flowers when they are wilted.

Smart tip about bluebells

Water in the evening when temperatures are high and you see the flowers drooping slightly.
