John Tock from Illinois emailed me to ask the following:
I have Hyacinths. I think they are very beautiful. BUT when the flowers die off, they leave what looks like seed pods. Are these seed pods or not? If they are seed pods, when do I pick them, and how deep do I plant them? As I am a senior, I cannot afford to buy more. The seeds, if that is what they are, would be a blessing to me.
Now, I think I know the answer to this: the seeds can be sown and, given time, the plants will develop bulblets and then flower. I know there will be some far more knowledgeable gardeners reading this who will know if I am correct, and can also tell John how and when to plant the seeds ... if you can help add your comments below.
