The hyacinth vases are just as cute. Since I bought 4 hyacinth kits, I’m going to force two of them and plant the other two outside in a pot. That way I’ll have blooms in my garden in the spring. I’ve been wanting some bulb vases for awhile and I’m so glad I found some. I’ve been looking everywhere for these including thrift stores, antique stores, etc. and now I have some! Yippee.
It’s pretty simple to do. All you need to do is fill the vases with water enough for the bottom of the bulbs to touch the water. Maintain this level of water and keep in a place that gets indirect sun. In 4-6 weeks, you’ll have blooms. I’ll keep everyone updated on the progress. A warning about forcing bulbs is that once the bulbs are forced, they are less likely to bloom again but bulbs come cheap today. They’re only around $.50 a bulb.
