    A Muscari in an old terracotta pot
    I do love grape hyacinths – they are the perfect companions for dwarf narcissus – but only when grown in pots. Put grape hyacinths in the garden and they seem to grow vast quantities of messy leaves and generally look less lovely than they do in pots. The good news is that they do very well in containers and when flowering is over they can be given a top dressing of fish, blood and bone to help with the formation of next year’s flowers and then the pots can be tucked away out of sight while the leaves die down and the bulbs go dormant for the summer. A label will help you identify them next year.
