Jan Bos is named after the Dutch Olympic speed skater and cyclist and this variety is a lovely spiraea red colour. Hyacinths for early flowering can be planted from early September and planted in bowls or pots with the tips showing (we do send out full growing instructions with all our bulbs). When bowls are used it is preferred that you use bulb fibre. After planting put in a dark place - pots with drainage can be put outside and covered with 3-4" of compost. The bulbs can then be brought indoors in early December when they will flower from Christmas onwards.
