Bring on Spring

There are several bulbs that make excellent choices, but the best bet is the hyacinth. You've probably seen these colorful flowers at local florists or perhaps even at the grocery story.Bright blue, white and pink varieties quickly fill the air with a strong, sweet fragrance. A two-chambered glass bulb forcer is simple, stylish and efficient. The clever design keeps roots hydrated as the flower emerges and fills the room with an inspiring scent.
