I bought some lovely pink hyacinths yesterday and planted one in a pot and the other in the ground. The flowers are beautiful, but the stalks are drooping. Is this normal, and what can I do to make them upright as they were yesterday?

They are lacking water and this is making the stems droop. Plants that have been repotted or transplanted need more water than usual until they get settled. They will not bloom again this season, but you can also try using a chopstick (or similar item) to prop the blossoms up while they are in bloom so that you can enjoy them in the garden.
