Plant hyacinth bulbs near where you will walk or sit come springtime. Pot up several handfuls. When the stems of colourful bells are just beginning to open, whisk the containers indoors. Then breath deeply. You’ve just grown your own home perfume. In many parts of the world hyacinths are coveted for their heady fragrance and grown for use in the production of perfumes. You may not choose to go into the fragrance business, but may still wish to take full advantage of this outstanding scent.
