More Details

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 'Woodstock'
  • Hyacinth 'White Pearl'
  • Hyacinth 'Peter Stuyvesant'

If you'd like to give this as a gift, we will send it out in our lovely Sarah Raven hessian sack, tied with ribbon, along with a gift card and envelope. Remember to type in your gift message at the checkout for it to be included in the card.
