If you experience the scent of hyacinths, you know spring has arrived! With their delicate fragrance and fresh colours they banish winter from your door. The Hyacinth arrived in Europe via Turkey, Syria and Lebanon around 1560, but it took a couple of more centuries before everyone could indulge in its charms. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries the Hyacinth was so exclusive, only rich aficionados could afford to adorn their conservatories with the plant. Fortunately things in the intervening years have changed considerably. The Hyacinth is now available to all as a cut flower or a pot plant. You can select from a wide range of various colours to mix and match on a tray or group in pots. The Hyacinth is equally at home inside or outside. Enjoy this cheerful bloomer!
