Do you know how the turnip, or hyacinth, as it is also called, got its name? According to Greek mythology, Hyakinthos was supposed to teach Apollo how to throw a discus. Things went really badly when Hyakinthos was hit and died. Where his blood dripped on the ground, flowers grew. These were called hyacinths, or in other words squirrels.

How hot?

Feel free to refrigerate the Hyacinth overnight. Then the flowering lasts longer.
