Hyacinths are a special treat as their flowers are both attractive and fragrant. If properly planned, hyacinths can be enjoyed indoors from mid-winter to early spring. Forcing daffodils in soil is more common and just as satisfying. You will need a shallow dish and some indoor potting soil. Use a dish that is big enough to hold all the bulbs you intend to grow and is as deep as the daffodils are tall. The dish should also have drainage holes. If it does not, add a thin layer of gravel to the bottom of the dish.
