I put these bulbs into hyacinth glasses. All are flowering. Lovely colour and more delicate than the standard hyacinth.

Because you and your team were so amazingly kind. Unfortunately, although I had placed an order for Hyacinth bulbs for my grandchildren to grow in glass jars, Sarah Raven could not fulfil the order due, I understand, to difficulties with the supplier. However...to my delight (and that of my grandchildren!) her Company sent me over a dozen bulbs of their own in stock - and at no cost to myself - in order not to disappoint the children.
It was SO KIND - and the grandchildren were absolutely thrilled to see the bulbs producing such wonderful purple hyacinths, with merely their roots in the water.

Bulbs good quality. Growing hydroponically. Mixed results but should be fine

Bulbs did not take root, or had poor roots, or went rotten despite not being watered for 6 weeks. One half of one bulb is trying to flower

Rather dissappointed ,I have followed instructions,only one of the bulbs have rooted so far,trying to be patient,but somehow not over confident.Must say it is the first time a purchase has been dissappoining,Thought I would try something different😀feels like a failure at this moment.
