How do you store hyacinth bulbs?

When the soil has dried out, carefully dig up the bulb and remove the dead foliage. Curing hyacinths is very easy. Lay the bulbs out on a newspaper in a cool, dark place for three days. After that, store them in a cool, dark location in a mesh bag.

Then, do hyacinth rebloom?

After flowering, indoor hyacinths can be planted outdoors where they will bloom the following spring. Hyacinths grown in the ground require very little maintenance. As soon as hyacinth flowers have faded they can be removed, but do make sure you let the leaves die back naturally to feed the bulb for next year.

Do hyacinth bulbs spread?

Yes, they produce offshoots that can be removed during the dormant season. The dormant season for hyacinths is summer. The best way is to dig up your hyacinths and remove the offshoots and place the parent bulb right back into the ground. You can either plant the offshoots at that time or wait until later.

Do you dead head hyacinths?

After 8 to 12 weeks of blooming, your hyacinth will begin to go dormant. First the flowers will die, and eventually the leaves will wither. When most of the flowers are brown, cut the entire flower stalk off. This is called deadheading.
