Would like some suggestions on the best and or easiest way of keeping Hyacinth bulbs for the following year, they seems to be many ways.

    Can it be done in cotton wool

    I'm interested in this too.  I am assuming they need a winter cooling but some sage advice would be appreciated.

    Hello, are these bulbs that have been outside?

    I would either leave in the ground or pot where they were or else when the leaves have died back keep somewhere dry, dark and cool, like a shed. I've never wrapped them in anything, just left them in an empty pot or seed tray, replanted in autumn and they have come up again the following spring.

    If they were indoor bulbs/forced, I have no experience of that, sorry.
    Wearside, England.
