Old house,old hyacinth patch leaves but no blooms
This is the second spring in this older house. Amid a thick deep hedge of forsythia emerge a healthy planting of hyacinth.
It appears they have been there for many years because of the spread of bulbs but none of them will develop flowers.
Do they need some sort of fertilizing over the summer/fall to feed the bulbs? Is it possible the natural ground cover of falling leaves provide just enough food to make good leaves but not sufficient to make a bloom?
It's such a healthy growth of leaves it's a shame not to have flowers and I don't really want to move them to another site in the yard. I've cut back the forsythia to better
expose the patch.
What do you bulb experts recommend I do to rejuvenate this patch of hyacinths?
I'm normally in the Carolina forum. I'll check back for answers. Thanks!
