Hyacinth Woodstock is well worth growing in your garden for the fantastic deep purplish red flowers it produces. Feed during flowering and protect young shoots from slugs and snails. Hyacinths are more often used in containers, but they are however excellent in the garden and underestimated for the colour they bring. Hyacinths are very fragrant and are easy to grow, either in the front of borders or in pots. 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.
