How to Force a Hyacinth Bulb.*This method is a particularly easy way to bring a bit of spring into your home before plants outside have warmed up enough to flower. You can use vases created especially for this purpose, or any jar or vase with a small enough mouth to support the bulb, without letting it fall in the water. The point of a forcing glass is to hold the bottom of the bulb away from the water. SEE WEBSITE for specifics: http://www.janeausten.co.uk/how-to-force-a-hyacinth-bulb/
