These hyacinth bloomed in frigid early February. (My first attempt at growing flowers!) Now that the blossoms are long gone and the real Spring is coming, I need to find a new kind of plant to try in these pots. They're 3" in diameter, and about 5.5" tall, no drainage holes, but very absorbant. The hyacinths had to be watered pretty regularly to keep the soil moist. The windows are second story southern facing in Rhode Island. Any suggestions on some nice bright small flowers? I just started some 6" Pansy seeds in peat pellets... but I'm afraid they'll be too bushy for these pots. Once the weather lets me keep the window open, the plants will have about 4" of 'bushing' space.
