These are the best hyacinths you can grow, my absolute top favourites from the many I have trialled, all with magnificent scent and of course, exceptional vase life.

Put a drop of bleach in the vase water with hyacinths and they will last longer. It stops bacteria proliferating and collapsing the stems.

This collection contains 5 bulbs each of:
  • Hyacinth orientalis 'Woodstock'
  • Hyacinth orientalis 'White Pearl'
  • Hyacinth orientalis 'Peter Stuyvesant'

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

The colours were gorgeous but the bulbs were quite erratic in their growth. Some were leggy, others quite squat.
