Hyacinth Bulbs - end of November 2019

Things are happening quickly now with all the crocus vases and 30 hyacinth vases out of the cellar. The hyacinths need to be out of the dark by December 1st to bloom for Christmas so I have many well on the way.

Growing Amaryllis in Vases

the amaryllis have stages they go through

1. bulbs into vases with the initial dry roots

2. those existing roots rot and turn the water black, the bulbs have new green shoots

3. I rinse out the vases, remove the rotting roots, add fresh water
