For starters, “forcing” is a misnomer because it sounds too much like work. We’re just tricking the bulbs into thinking winter is over quite a bit sooner than it is. This is a simple trick that allows you to enjoy the rejuvenating scents and colors of spring during a season when your spirits are in dire need of reviving. You can’t force it. Need to plant You can enjoy these results now in the autumn! While we think of Tulips, Hyacinths, Daffodils and Hyacinths being forced, many other smaller bulbs can also be compelled. Crocus Crocus, Muscari(Grape Hyacinth), Scilla, Dwarf Irises and Anemones are all great options 🙌😉
You can choose one of these three methods to get your bulbs out. Grow them over water You can either force jars or plant in potting soil. The method of planting is dictated by the container. Find Hyacinth forcing cans at the nursery supply stores and onlineHourglass-shaped containers allow you to grow different bulb types. The bottom of the vase should be filled with water to nourish the roots. Next, place the bulb in the top. If you are growing bulbs in pots, make sure the container is at least twice the height of the bulb. For crocus, you will need a larger container than for amaryllis. It is important that drainage holes are provided in the container. For their latest revision, thanks a lot to Dino Gale
Planting. Bulbs will look their best when placed in a wide, shallow pot measuring 4″-6″ high. Root growth should take place at 2 inches below the bulbs. It is possible for the bulb top to be flush with the pot rim. Standard potting mixture (2/3 soilless, 1/3 compost/soil) is recommended. The best way to make potted bulbs look their best is to place them about 1/2 inch apart. You should only use one bulb variety per pot because of differences in the cooling and blooming times. Once you have planted your bulbs, make sure to water them well. Label each pot with the date and variety names. You won’t be able to identify what they are when they bloom.

Many bulbs require a time in darkness to allow the roots to grow before light pulls out the flowers and leaves. Although amaryllis and freesia are an exception to the rule, amaryllis, Tazetta narcissi, and narcissus papayraceus “Ziva” are all essential. Cheap indoor hyacinths often have this problem: after a cold spell they start to flower, but their bottom leaves keep the flower in place. You can see the roots have not developed enough to push the bulbs and flowers out of the pot if you take them out. This page was last edited 43 days back by Ashland Judd (Novosibirsk Russia).
