Mums and Grape Hyacinth

kingskid added on July 6, 2011 | Answered

I have mums and grape hyacinths. They have both wintered in my kitchen. How do I restart them? Can I use the flowers from the mums to plant and start them growing again? My grape hyacinth has passed the bloom stage, now what do I do with them?

If the mum plant is still green, you should just be able to set it in a sunny place and it will sprout and grow. You can also take cuttings. Here is information on that:

As for the grape hyacinth, leave those until the leaves yellow. Once the leaves are yellow, you can store them until next year. Here is information on how to do that:

In addition, you will need to put them in the fridge for 6-8 weeks to chill them in order to get them to bloom next year.
