Do you feel a bit sorry for it, with no compost?

Thank you all ...

Yes Sue , I don't really like growing them this way but it belongs to Beryl ... nothing I can do about it :(
It will go in the ground as soon as the flower fades.

A pretty one, I like them in the house to get their lovely scent - springtime!

Thanks ... yes you can smell the lovely scent as you walk into the room :)

It was a dead cert you'd put it in the ground Hywel... must take a few years before they flower again?

They don't usually do well but I like to give them a chance.

That's the same as me!

Though not in water our daughter gave me a pot of blue Hyacinths last year. There was so little compost in the pot that it might just as well been in water! Nevertheless for a week or so it flowered & then, like you, Hywel, I planted it in a decent pot full of compost & just today I noticed the noses of 2 of the 3 pushing through the compost on the balcony. I hope they will flower but we will have to wait & see!

Thank you, I'm glad they're growing again for you. I hope they will have flowers ...

A very pretty shade of pink. I like them too, but they always end up top heavy and having to be staked.

Yes, a pretty pink. Children like to grow them this way, it's educational for them to see the root development as well as the flower, so they sometimes grow them at school.
