Our City of Haarlem Hyacinths are beautifully scented and will add colour to your garden from March. City of Haarlem Hyacinths will flower when planted in any type of garden soil and will thrive in full sun or light shade - an easy flower to please! For a long successful display of your City of Haarlem Hyacinths in subsequent years, it is best to lift the bulb after their foliage has died down and store them in dry peat until planting time comes around next year.
Hints and tips...
Unpack on arrival
- Check order is correct and quality is as expected.
- Store in a cool, dry and dark place with good air circulation.
should be done as soon as possible.
Soil should not be too wet and have good drainage but
should have good moisture retention as bulbs are not deep rooted.
Soil structure can be improved by adding course sand or well rotted
organic material. The ideal PH level is approximately 6.5.
fertilizer is not essential but a dressing of a high potash and phosphate
fertilizer such as bone meal or hoof and bone applied before planting
may be beneficial.
As a rule of thumb bulbs should be planted at least two and a
half times the height of the bulb and far enough apart as not to touch
each other. Plant bulbs in small groups of 6-8 bulbs. It is preferable to
plant before the risks of frost so that rooting can take place quickly.
After rooting they are quite frost tolerant.
When planting in grass areas mowing should not take place until the
leaves have died off (about six weeks from planting.) Do not tie up or
knot the foliage as this cuts off food supply.
Bulbs can be toxic and should not be eaten. Some types may cause
skin irritation therefore gloves should be worn.
