It’s early Spring in the Mid-Atlantic area of the U.S. and our Grape Hyacinth are in full bloom! Five reasons to grow hyacinth in your garden are:
- Hyacinth are hardy plants that require very little maintenance.
- Hyacinth are deer-resistant, rabbit-resistant, vole resistant, and squirrel resistant.
- Over time, hyacinth bulbs multiply on their own. You can always dig up the bulbs if you would like to plant them in a different area.
- After a long, dreary winter, Hyacinth provide a bright spot of color in your garden!
- Hyacinth smell good! They have a very strong fragrance that will tingle your senses!
For beginner gardeners, plant the large bulbs in the Autumn, and look forward to beautiful blooms in early Spring. Dig a hole 6 inches deep and insert the bulb, flat end down, pointy end up. Happy Gardening!
