Grape Hyacinth Bulbs  

Latin:  Muscari neglectum

Distribution:  This is a native plant but rare in the wild, occurring only in sandy field margins and grassland in East Anglia.
Habitat:  Prefers a dry sunny site with well-drained soil.
Description:  Perennial.  It is a short plant with dark blue, plum-scented flowers in dense clusters, which have a white rim at the mouth.  The flowers appear from March to May.
Other Notes:  The flowers are attractive to early foraging bees. 

Planting Instructions for Bulbs:  Grape Hyacinth bulbs should be planted in the autumn as soon as received.  They are best planted where they can be left undisturbed.  Plant with about 5 to 10cm of soil above the bulb, so that the soil covering does not dry out during the Spring.  If the soil dries out, the plant may not have sufficient moisture to build up the bulb for flowering the following year.
