It may help to add phosphorus or bone meal to the soil, as there could be too much nitrogen - resulting in lots of foliage growth with little to no blooms. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm

Were they in the ground or in a container? Did you fertilize? It's been my experience that hyacinth's bloom great the first year, then decline each year till they don't do much blooming at all.
