Hyacinths at Christmas

I have a tradition of always having sweet smelling Hyacinths in the house at Christmas. It just smells right when the sweet fragrance wafts through the house.

I always start the process off the first week of October with some bought bulbs to 'force' for Christmas flowering.

They are then covered & kept in a dark place until the leaves appear to a reasonable height then they are brought into the warm house & in the light which wakes them up .....

This year, white flowers in time for Christmas, this does not happen often so it is a real treat.
Do you grow any special flowers? What are your favourite?

Enjoy your weekend, ♥ Dee ♥
