If planting for an indoor container, use bulb fibre compost which has the addition of the correct nutrients and also carbon which reduces a 'sour' compost smell.
Plant 3 or 5 in a shallow container so that their noses are proud of the compost surface and the bulbs have 2 cm gap between them in September. These bulbs have not been 'prepared' so they will not flower any earlier than those naturally in the garden ( they have not had 12 weeks of refrigeration for a pretend winter). Water well and place outside in a cool, shaded, sheltered area and keep an eye on them for water. Once growing and you can see the beginnings off the central flower spike forming bring indoors to appreciate their scent and form.
Remove spent flower heads and allow plant to naturally die back ready for its regrowth next spring.
Hyacinths are best replaced every couple of years as their performance diminishes without the special growing conditions achieved by nurserymen.
