I bought three of these as I have always loved hyacinths. This was my first time growing them and it was so easy. You pop the bulb in the vase with water and that's it. Yes, you top them up as needed but I loved being able to watch the bulbs' root system grow- kids loved this too. The blooms are lush, fragrant and brilliant in colour. The price is great compared to other places and the delivery was fast too. I just loved these and will be getting more soon.

Used this as a gift to my customers. Attractive and well-liked gift. Then, I grew one to see what it was like--disappointed. Directions were complicated and much more care involved than "just add water". My bulb got slimy and never bloomed. Won't use as a gift again.

          Best Uses

            Comments about American Meadows Blue Hyacinth Indoor Growing Kit - Growing Kit:

            I bought 8 of these for gifts. Gave myself one. The vase was nice but the bulb rotted away. I heard from my sister who tried it too and the bulb rotted for her. We both followed the directions about keeping it in a dark place and the water level. Maybe more directions on what to watch out for to prevent the bulb from rotting would be good to have.

                      I send my Mother your flowers on Mothers's Day and other special occassions as she lives in an RV, is elderly and enjoys receiving these flowers due to the ease and care of growing.. as she watched them grow, she calls me to give me reports of how much they 've grown, and then.. how beautiful they are.. she loves the thought..

                      Had a little better luck with blue hyacinth bulbs than the white ones, but it's a 50/50 shot you'll get a nice flower. Same bulbs planted at the same time and stored properly for the required amt of time yielded different results every time. And I received several broken glass jars for the bulbs, but American Meadows immediately replaced them.

                      Beautiful flowers & cracked glass vase. Though vase is very breakable. Also must make sure bulbs do not set in water.
