Is this kind of plant will grow in hot country.... - Nice flower... I like it.... Just wonder if will grow this in philippines
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
I guess the plant will grow on the Philippines too. The problem is that you need too keep them cool for several weeks to force the bulbs to produce a flower. Have a look at https://www.oldhousegardens.com/ForcingBulbs.aspx for instructions. Maybe you can put them in the refrigerator.

I think I recognize these forcing vases. Are they Pairpoint?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
hi Elaine,

The one on the left is made by Danish company Holmegaard. The other two I bought second hand. They are quite old and I don't know the brand. But it's not very likely they are made by Pairpoint because I haven't seen any Pairpoint glasses in the Netherlands yet. They are probably from around here because the Dutch have a long history of forcing bulbs. This long tall shape is very common and produced by several manufacturers so there is a big chance Pairpoint made glasses that look very much like these.

When I googled Pairpoint after reading your question the first interesting page I found was yours (http://elainemjohnson.com/blog/?p=1128). The glass on the right in the old advert looks very similar.

Kind regards,

Thanks for answering my ?. Pairpoint Glass in Sandwich, MA still makes hyacinth forcing vases in a couple of colors and you may want to check them out for your collection. http://elainemjohnson.com/blog/?p=1128. Love your vases BTW. Happy Holidays.

hi Annie.

I'm very sorry I missed your question last year. These are Hyacinth bulbs. The vases I used are specially designed to grow these bulbs inside. If you're interested you can have a look at http://www.hyacinthvases.org.uk for more information,

Hyacinths combine both colors in one pretty package. Placed in purple vases, you get to see both shades even when they're not in bloom.
Natalie Myers added this to What to Look for at the Flea Market Now
Antique cameras are also a wanted commodity. With the ease of digital photography and camera phones, the visual appeal of these antique versions has grown tremendously. People love displaying and collecting these, and why shouldn't you have one, too?
Cameras. Keep your eyes open for objects that interest you. Antique cameras have an appealing look with their black covers and geometric mechanisms.
Like objects always have more impact when grouped together. Just like the trio of vases on this side table, the pair of cameras attracts much more attention in unison than either camera would on its own.

Hyacinth(Hyacinthus)USDA zones: 4 to 8, depending on speciesBloom period: Early spring to early summerHeight: 12 inchesHow to plant: 4 to 5 inches deep and 5 inches apart for Dutch hybrids; others 3 inches deep and 4 to 5 inches apart, or force Dutch hybrids in a hyacinth glassLight requirement: Full sunWater requirement: Regular water while growing and blooming; can take some summer moistureThe classic Dutch hyacinth (Hyacinthus orientalis) is what most people think of when they hear the word "hyacinth," as it’s the most widely available in colors that range from white to yellow to pink to blue and purple. It’s a favorite for forcing into bloom indoors. There’s even an appropriately named “hyacinth glass,” designed to hold the bulb and water and allow you to watch the roots develop as it grows. It’s also a favorite for containers. Outdoors, these hyacinths work well in drifts or informal beds but are structured enough to hold their own in a more traditional setting. Hyacinths will probably come back yearly only in cold-winter regions. Gardeners in warmer regions would do best to treat these as annuals. H. orientalis, the Roman or French Roman hyacinth, is less familiar but a good choice for warm-winter regions. It blooms early, with white, pink or light blue flowers.
Hyacinths are characterized by clusters of tiny pastel blooms that emit a sweet fragrance. They have relatively short leaves and therefore can be placed in specialized forcing vases, like the ones shown here.
Pull out a vintage vase and fill it with flowers. In some parts of the world, it’s the time of year to force branches.See more ways to use vintage vessels

ure, hyacinths bloom naturally outdoors during springtime, but you can also trick them into blooming indoors in the dead of winter. Forcing bulbs isn't reserved for commercial growers. The casual indoor gardener can have a steady supply of gorgeous and fragrant blooming hyacinths from late December through April with just a little effort. Here's how. Hyacinths are characterized by clusters of tiny pastel blooms that emit a sweet fragrance. They have relatively short leaves and therefore can be placed in specialized forcing vases, like the ones shown here.
