The gardener moves indoors

It is time to start the hyacint bulbs. Those for indoor growing have been hard to find here this year, but on Saturday I was lucky. We were at our cabin and when Terje visited a shop to buy some tools I found a corner filled with bulbs. Most of them were for next spring flowers, but in between I found six hyacints, two white, two pink and two blue.
Marta has promised me to make paper hats for them tomorrow and they will then be removed down to the basement for a few weeks of resting.

Your post reminds me not to forget this hyazinth bulbs either. Last year I wasn't so lucky in growing them. But I'll have another go...the fragrance is also worth it. Have a good and safe journey and stay in India. I'm sure you'll have a great time there! Take care of you!
