Frequently Asked Questions

Hyacinth Carnegie is generally considered deer resistant. While no plant is completely immune to deer browsing, hyacinths, including the Carnegie variety, are known for their strong fragrance and toxic compounds that make them unattractive to deer. However, in areas with heavy deer populations or when deer are particularly hungry, they may still nibble on hyacinths. To increase their resistance, you can try using deer repellents or planting other deer-resistant plants nearby.

Pinching Hyacinth Carnegie is not necessary. Unlike some plants that benefit from pinching to promote branching or control height, hyacinths, including the Carnegie variety, do not require pinching. These spring-blooming bulbs naturally grow to a specific height and do not need additional intervention to thrive. Simply plant the bulbs at the appropriate depth, provide them with well-draining soil and adequate sunlight, and they will develop into beautiful flowers without any pinching required.

The secret to growing Hyacinth Carnegie lies in providing the right growing conditions. Start by selecting healthy bulbs and planting them in well-draining soil in a sunny or partially shaded location. The soil should be moderately fertile and moist but not waterlogged. Adequate watering is important during the growing season, especially when the plant is establishing roots and developing blooms. Additionally, providing a layer of organic mulch can help conserve moisture and suppress weed growth. After the flowers fade, allow the foliage to die back naturally, as this replenishes the bulb for future growth.

If you forget to plant your Hyacinth Carnegie bulbs at the ideal time, there are still options available. While it's best to plant hyacinth bulbs in fall, they can still be planted in early winter or early spring before the last frost date. However, keep in mind that the later you plant them, the later they will bloom. If you missed the planting window entirely, you can store the bulbs in a cool, dry location until the next planting season. Ensure the bulbs are kept in a breathable container, such as a mesh bag, and periodically check for any signs of mold or decay. When the appropriate planting time arrives, follow the usual planting instructions for Hyacinth Carnegie bulbs.
