June Multiplying Hyacinths in and Today Daffodils, tulips, and most other bulbs multiply naturally underground by producing offsets or daughter bulbs.
Roman hyacinths do, too, but — after centuries of breeding — traditional garden hyacinths reproduce so slowly this way that bulb growers long ago developed ways to speed up the process.
The techniques described below by Liberty Hyde Bailey in his Nursery Manual would have been familiar to bulb-growers a century earlier and are still standard practice in the Netherlands today. Growth of stem and leaves is more or less checked and the energy is directed to the formation of minute bulbs.
The strongest bulbs should be chosen, and the operation is performed in spring or early summer, when the bulb is taken up. This operation is sometimes performed later in the season than the other, and precaution should be exercised that the bulbs do not become too moist, else they will rot.
The wounded bulbs produce very little foliage, but at the end of the first season the bulbels will have formed. The bulbels are then separated and planted by themselves in prepared beds. Some of the strongest ones may produce flowering bulbs in three years, but some of them, especially those obtained from the hollowed bulbs, will not mature short of six years.
If you do, please share your story and photos with us. Good luck, and have fun! June Art from the Garden: Injust after he exhibited his best-known work, the scandalous Luncheon on the Grass, Manet made several paintings of peonies, including Peonies in a Vase on a Stand, pictured here.

Are you nurturing plants in your garden that have all but disappeared everywhere else? May When Fort Meyers was the Gladiolus Capital of the World Once upon a time, sunny Fort Myers, Florida, was not just a popular vacation destination, it was also the gladiolus-growing capital of the world, with local farms shipping some million stems a year to florists throughout the US and overseas.
It all started in when two successive winter freezes in central Florida drove gladiolus growers further south to the Iona area just outside of Fort Myers. Within a decade, 30 growers were cultivating some acres of glads there.
Gladiolus at the time were hugely popular. Not only were they showy and easy to grow but their long vase life made them the perfect cut-flower. Every year gladiolus societies across the country displayed thousands of spikes in shows that drew tens of thousands of visitors.
See a glad show here. Harvesting the Fort Myers glads started in November and continued into June. The goal was for the stalks to bloom in the hands of the florist.
