Q.Hyacinth Bulbs to Plant Now

Anonymous added on March 23, 2011 | Answered

I’ve read up on keeping spring-blooming bulbs in the refrigerator over the winter and forcing them to bloom in the spring. I haven’t yet planted the bulbs outdoors because I would like them to be blooming around May 21, which is late for my area (near St. Louis, MO). How long after planting the bulbs in the ground outside can I expect them to bloom? Or would it be best to try to plant them in pots?

If the other plants in your area have already bloomed, they should bloom within 2-3 weeks after being planted outside. The weather should be warm enough to encourage that. That being said, there is no guarantee.
