Why We Love It

The Hyacinthus 'Jan Bos' is a bright, cheerful plant. In spring, enjoy its bell-shaped flowers with dark-pink petals.

It's also highly fragrant, so plant it near your doorway or patio to enjoy the perfume.

RHS Award winner.

Bedding hyacinths will grow in a wide range of soils provided there is good drainage.

They like sunshine but the flowers will last longer in partial shade. Suitable for beds, borders and containers.

The fragrant flowers are perfect for planting near doors, windows or pathways.

Hyacinth bulbs can cause skin irritation, please use gloves or wash hands after handling.

Planting Calendar

Plant in June, July, August.

Flowers in March, April.

Planting and Care

It thrives in all kinds of well-drained soil of any pH. Plant it in full sun or partial shade.

These bulbs should ideally be planted at a depth of 15cm/6 inches and a distance of 15cm/6 inches.

Into the Ground

  1. Find a sunny but sheltered spot for your bulbs.
  2. Dig some holes twice the size of the rootballs so that your bulbs can be placed 10 cm apart.
  3. Mix in some organic compost and add the bulbs to the holes.
  4. Backfill with soil and water well.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a container large enough for a few bulbs.
  2. Fill it with soil and dig a few holes twice the size of the rootballs. 
  3. Place the bulbs so that they touch, to create a clumping effect.
  4. Cover with soil, just letting the tip of the bulbs jut out.
  5. Gently firm the soil.
  6. Water generously.
  7. Place the pot in a cool, dark and moist place.
