What can I do with the pods left on my hyacinth plants? Can I plant them for new bulbs or just cut down the whole plant after it has flowered?
Pods on Hyacinth Plants

You can grow new hyacinth from the seed pods, but they will take many years before they are mature enough to flower. Most people simply cut them off and allow the plant to focus on storing energy for next year's blossom.
You can cut the seed pod off, but do not cut the leaves off until they turn yellow. The leaves are how the plant builds energy for next year's bloom.
