I love these and I am so glad you put this photo on, mine took 20 days from planting to flowering and it does seem very quick!
Did you happen to get your 3 bulbs from Sainsburys?

Me too ST, I wonder if they have been forced in some different way?

Hi Stickitoffee They are gorgeous, I will do some next year :)

6 Dec, 2011

 

amazing! Do they smell good?

6 Dec, 2011

 

they do have a scent which is quite nice but i dont think it would be to everyone's taste.

6 Dec, 2011

 

Oh they are very beautiful Stickitoffee.

Well done Sticki, they look beautiful. Interesting to know they flowered so quickly. When Ive grown these before, Ive always had to put some twiggy supports around them as they have a tendency to flop. Yours look lovely and perky!! I love the scent of these, not quite as strong as hyacinths, but I like that too.

they are tied together just below the flowers PL ~ otherwise they certainly flop ~ too tall for their own good.
thanks alex and PL

Sticki, they're gorgeous!!!

i thought about picking them and putting them in water so they were all the same height but i dont think they will last as long?

thanks karen ~ little touch of spring?
