FACTS & HISTORY:
Gardeners in the 19th century loved forcing hyacinths in special vases for winter bloom. The practice dates back to the mid-1700s when Madame Pompadour, influential mistress of Louis XV, had hundreds of hyacinths forced in vases at Versailles.
One of the most popular trends of the Victorian era was forcing spring bulbs to flower indoors in wintertime. The novelty of being able to cheer up gloomy February parlors with blooming hyacinths and crocuses was responsible for the increased manufacture of glass bulb vases. Today, antique bulb vases are collected worldwide.
