Create some colour indoors
Pot these bulbs up into a bowl and grow on indoors until they are ready to be placed in a prominent position where they fill the room with their delicious scent. After they have finished flowering, you can plant them out in the garden. 'Prepared' hyacinths have been through a sequence of cold treatments, which triggers the growing process. This means they tend to flower much earlier than 'unprepared' hyacinths, and they are mainly grown as indoor plants, where their strongly scented flowers will fill your room with their sweet perfume. 'Aiolos' produces densely packed, cylindrical clusters of highly scented, ivory white flowers, which may be in flower as early as Christmas.
