We're excited about our November Garden Pick of the Month launching today with free P&P throughout the month, so we thought we would discover a bit more about the absolutely gorgeous hyacinth Pink Pearl potted plant.
Perfect for the gifting season, this irresistibly presented plant comes in a beautiful decorative basket and features five specially primed bulbs that burst in to bloom over the Christmas period. And with its richly-scented, big pink blooms this hyacinth is sure to make an ideal centrepiece.
To find out more, we decided to catch up with Thompson & Morgan guest and gardening expert Michael Perry to get his thoughts on this must-have plant!
"Ever since I was a child, I've been growing plants and giving them to friends and family and I always found it so rewarding to hand over something that I'd grown myself. But now, Thompson & Morgan have done the hard work for you by offering the hyacinth 'Pink Pearl' ready-planted into a decorative container perfect for friends and family!
If you've got people on your Christmas list who really do have everything, then why not think about giving them a living gift? As each of these bulbs have been specially treated to flower over the Christmas period it is very likely that you be able to give that rich pink colour and heavenly fragrance, on Christmas Day!
The recipient doesn't have to be green-fingered either as hyacinths are really simple to grow in any cool room of the house. As it's also possible to plant them in the garden afterwards, you'll be assured of a spectacular repeat performance. As a gift product, this can be delivered to your home or even ordered for someone else. Imagine your loved one's surprise when they open the package to see something other than tea towels this festive season!"
