hyacinth bulbs

this time of year, its a treat to see a sneak preview of spring...forcing white flowering bulbs is a way to get a jump start on the gardening season!
paperwhites take about 2-4 weeks, amaryllis 4-6 weeks, hyacinths are slow going, but the fragrance is worth waiting for, and tulips are also about 4 weeks...
