The Hyacinth 'Aiolos' (prepared) is a very popular Hyacinth with large star shaped bell-like flowers in a strong ivory-white colour and framed with green curved leaves. These flowers have a sweet fragrance making them excellent for cut flowers.
Hyacinths referred to as "prepared" are given this name because they have been readied for early blooming. This process involves cooling the bulbs at below freezing temperatures for approximately a week during the summer.
The Hyacinth Aiolos bulbs will flower in December/January and are suitable for planting in sunny and partially shaded locations. They require well-drained soil and should be planted approximately 10cm deep.
Some Hyacinth bulbs can cause skin irritations so it is recommended that gloves are worn when handling.
