Care Information

Planting Advice for Muscari album:

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back – they’ll come back bigger and better each year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

Aftercare for Muscari Grape Hyacinths:

  • Grape hyacinths don’t need a lot of care; they're happy with natural rainfall and don’t need any form of fertilizer.
  • Once their leaves back, you can cut them off or leave them to compost back into the soil.
  • Allow the bulb leaves to die down naturally for a bigger display the following season.
  • Water freely through the summer.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

 Pruning your Grape Hyacinths:

  • Cut off the old flower spikes as soon as the bloom period is over (unless you require the seeds).
