Q.Muscaei Armeniacum Not Flowering

Zone Wales | CMar added on February 12, 2020 | Answered

I planted my bulbs following the instructions provided on 29-11-19. As of today, 12-02-20, they haven’t flowered. They just look like long pieces of grass. Should I just compost bin them, or will they eventually flower?

I'm afraid that it is far too early for blooms, just yet.

If they have not flowered by mid to late Spring, then you can try adding a little phosphorus and potassium to the soil. Sometimes, just a little too much nitrogen will halt flowering.

Here is an article that will help you to care for these plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/grape-hyacinth/planting-and-care-of-grape-hyacinths.htm
