Description

A lovely deep blue grape hyacinth, which I have lining one of my veg beds to cheer it up in the early spring.

Grape hyacinths are very easy to grow and are brilliant for pots as well as flower beds. They will thrive inside or out in a sunny position but don't mind a bit of shade.

I like the early foliage before the flowers, especially in pots, and the seedpods are good too, giving value wherever you grow them from March until June.

Care Tips

Can take over a bit if given room so pots are the perfect way to contain them. Remove spent foliage. Lift and divide clumps in the summer months to avoid congestion.
