Grow a hyacinth in a glass jar, ready for a Mother’s Day gift

Even if you have never nurtured a plant in your life, a hyacinth is a safe bet. Emma Hardy’s simple steps in The Winter Garden (CICO Books, £14.99) say to pop the bulb on top of a jar filled with water, tucking any roots down into the base. Be careful not to let the bulb touch the water as it could rot. Leave in a dark, cool place (like a shed) with a paper bag over the top for a few weeks. Bring out into the warm when it begins to shoot, and it’ll flower within a month.

About Homestyle

Wow, another year has gone by already! There is something about packing away those Christmas decorations (and cleaning all the little corners that have been totally neglected for the past month...) that inspires a few changes on the home front. I always see things in a new light at this time of year and feel renewed energy and resolve to start afresh. If you are looking for ways to give your home a revamp, have a flick through our mini mag on HomeStyle’s best 40 rooms – there’s something for everyone. If you ask your friends, I’ll bet they’ll say that the room in their home that needs most attention is the bathroom. Even trawling through Pinterest and Instagram, it’s almost impossible to find really great inspiration for this much overlooked space, so we decided to challenge our resident stylist, Pippa Jameson, to come up with three different looks that are bang up to date for 2016. Another change here is that this is my last issue of our wonderful magazine! I have enjoyed every second of my time on HomeStyle with the most amazing team of people. I hand you over to them from the March issue. Enjoy!
