Potted Hyacinth this Spring
I bought a potted hyacinth that was in full bloom and was told that it is hardy in our region as a perennial bulb. As I researched I realized that they were dormant bulbs planted in the Fall, like garlic or tulips...
The plant was languishing in the pot and going dormant as the flower died back, then the foliage. So I pulled it out of the pot, let it dry a bit, wrap in a napkin, then placed it into the refrigerator, where it is now.
Was this an error and how soon can I get it into the ground? My research gave me only so much understanding about the life cycle for these things and anyone that has worked with them, would likely have valuable information for me. Thank-you. :)
