What to do with hyacinth and muscaris bulbs?

From the very first cold, garden centers and florists offer forced bulbs that are just waiting to bloom in the warmth of our apartments. Thanks to a technique which dates from the 17th century, these plants are already believed in spring in the middle of January… for our greatest pleasure! 10 decorative ideas to flower and perfume the house throughout the winter, for just a few euros…

In paper or burlap, of course


My plant my happiness / The Garden of Il d'Elle Once at home, we repot the bulbs in small jars of jam, sprinkle lightly, and we wrap everything in a burlap or white paper with a pretty string, a sprig of raffia or a ribbon. And here are pretty plant pots as simple as they are elegant! Source: My plant my happiness / The Garden of Il d'Elle

In newspaper, eco-chic

In a transparent jar, absolutely


Eenigwonen / Pinterest The big trend is to plant your spring bulbs in transparent pots, to show the bulbs and the plant root system. Depending on the desired effect, we opt for jars or jars of recycled jam, or large straight vases at the bottom of which we do not hesitate to add a layer of draining substrate and a little potting soil before transferring its bulbs .

In a large vase, for a 100% decorative effect
