Indoor hyacinth growing shoots in July

My pot of indoor hyacinths has started to grow shoots already. I left it in cool room for foliage to die back earlier in the year and pulling away the dead leaves have found new growth-5 cm height. Should I leaveit / store in dark?



It would have been better if you'd put them outside for the summer, really, but as they're growing, you might actually get some flowers again indoors, though earlier, of course. Normally, indoor hyacinths are treated to force them to flower around Christmas time and once they have, its' best to plant them outside and buy new ones. You may not get any flowers on these ones though - depends how much of a food store the bulbs have.
