    Default hyacinth with no flower?

    I had some hyacinths that I got over the summer from aa shop. I put them in a dark garage in September so they'd take the hint and go to sleep for next year. Instead, they have re-sprouted, but there is a hole in the midle where I'd expect the flower to sprout. has anyone else had this?

    Is the bulb soft and squidgy?

    If they’ve resprouted they sound ok. The leaves come first,the flower appears a little later,do you have a photo? How tall is the green,if they’re little cover them up again,if they’re a couple of inches you could bring them in the house out of direct sunlight but in the light,mine go on the kitchen floor. I haven’t had a chance to grow any indoors this year,the scent will be lovely off them.

    they are in a pot, but I suspect the domestic expectation is for floral display, not greenery.

    Put them on a warm sunny window sill and they may flower in a couple of weeks or so. I did some last year for Christmas and the domestic expectation was that they would smell lovely. The domestic reality was that the scent made us both feel a little sick
