Well, this is probably quite a beginners’ question, but: I bought four hyacinth bulbs, already potted, from the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens about a month ago. I don’t have an outdoor area (I live in an apartment), so I put the bulbs on my windowsill, which gets amazing sun. All of my other plants love that sun.
Not my hyacinths, though. One came up to about 3 inches and…just froze, mid-bloom. The others started to peek up out of the soil and froze, too.
I may have overwatered; if so, did I kill them? Or can I save them. They’ve been in a state of arrested development for about 3 weeks now. Thanks in advance for your advice!
