Keeping this in view, how do you save hyacinth bulbs?
When the soil has dried out, carefully dig up the bulb and remove the dead foliage. Curing hyacinths is very easy. Lay the bulbs out on a newspaper in a cool, dark place for three days. After that, store them in a cool, dark location in a mesh bag.
Subsequently, question is, do you have to dig up hyacinth bulbs every year? You have two choices: You can leave the hyacinth bulbs in the ground all winter, or you can dig them up and store them indoors in a cool, dark, dry place until the following fall or winter. For example, hyacinths must have cold winter weather to bloom in spring.
Also asked, do hyacinths multiply?
Reply: Yes, they produce offshoots that can be removed during the dormant season. The best way is to dig up your hyacinths and remove the offshoots and place the parent bulb right back into the ground.
Do hyacinth come back every year?
Although hyacinth does return each year, it is usually smaller after the first season and has fewer blooms. In areas with mild winters, you need to provide extra care to the hyacinth bulb to get it to bloom.
