Odysseus is one of the best orange flowered Hyacinths that we have grown. This is a lovely variety to grow and its orange flowers will bring an added dimension to any garden. Hyacinths are very fragrant and bring a great aroma to the garden. Suitable for bedding or containers. Cultivate soils to a depth of 20cms and plant bulbs 10cms deep and up to 10cms apart in heavier soils add grit or well rotted humus to help with drainage. When growing in containers planting distance can be reduced to 5cms. ideal to plant with dwarf tulips, muscari or dwarf narcissi. Remove flowers once they have turned brown and leave foliage to die back. Ensure bulbs are fed during the flower and leaf stage.
