They said that the single pots of blooming Hyacinths, mostly pink and white that bloomed earliest, that I sent for the birthday celebrants at the nursing home in January were a hit.
Hyacinths in the outdoors are blooming before stems are out of the ground, indicating a lack of winter cold.
I had an email from Sally's Mom who said she followed my instructions for pre-chilling and planting hyacinths in pots of soil with good results.
I failed to follow my own instructions closely enough for Hippeastrum. No Amaryllis are blooming in the greenhouse, just a plethora of green foliage. I'm not sure where I went wrong but maybe buds will appear sometime this month or the next. If not, they're all going into the ground outside to start over for bloom cycles next spring.
