is super easy.
While picking up a few things at the hardware store I came upon some bulbs that were on sale for $2.00 per package. Some of them had 6 bulbs, some 8, and the tulips had 12 bulbs.
There were packages of purple and white hyacinths which I dearly love for their wonderful fragrance. The bulbs were large and already sprouted, so I grabbed a few packages.
I rooted around (no pun intended) and found a nice low clay pot. After putting a bunch of broken clay pieces in the bottom for drainage, I added a bit of soil and stuck in the bulbs. After covering the top with bark the pot was watered and placed by the window. When I'm bored I can always sit and watch the hyacinth grow.
Hyacinths come in many beautiful colors
My pot will have a mixture of white and purple
Hyacinths and other bulbs can even be grown in water. My grandma used to put them in a beautiful low bowl surrounded by rocks with just a bit of water. They also make cute little bulb vases.
In just a few weeks I'll have a beautiful blooming pot of fragrant hyacinth for about $1.50. The bulbs I didn't use for the pot will go outside.
