Will hyacinth plants thrive in Zone 7?
Yes, you can grow these plants in Zone 7 and they should be fine. However, you should keep in mind that in Zone 7, you may have trouble getting them to chill over the winter. They need at least 7-8 weeks of temps below 45 to bloom the following year. These articles will help:
I was given tulips for Valentine's Day. The flowers had dried out, but the bulb is moist and looks to be in pretty good shape. I am not sure what to do with the bulb. I want to keep it so that I may replant it, but I'm not sure how to do so. What should I do?

I have been looking all over for rutabaga seeds and cannot find them anywhere. Why?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer suggestions on places to find seeds. I would search online, or at your local nurseries.
i have just really started doing a lil gardening. i planting about 6 hyacinth plants last fall that was giving to me for easter. my question is this spring they came up so pretty purple.then 3 more came up down a ways from them they were white.then i had 5 more to come up in a different place but kind in the area of the ones i planted they were also white. could the white one come from the purple ones i planted?
Not in one season. If They had been there a few years, it is possible, but they need to be in the ground for at least a full year before they produce seeds and bulblets (which you would need to grow new hyacinth).
They may have been there before but just did not do well (i.e. flower) before there was someone to care for the location. Seeds may have been dropped by birds or other animals as well.
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.
Can I move hyacinths now after they have come up?
You should really wait until fall to move them, but I have seen them moved in spring without problems. If you move them while in bloom, the blooms will be shorter lived.
