SAVE THE HYACINTHS! – Hyacinths are the most endangered garden bulbs. In 1886, D. M. Ferry offered 135 – twice the number of tulips and ten times the number of daffodils. But today you’ll find very few in most catalogs and gardens. What a loss!
Fragrant and quaint, hyacinths bring a rainbow of color into the garden well before tulip time. Wind a drift through your perennial border or force a few indoors and see if you don’t agree that they’re just too wonderful to let go extinct.
