Hyacinths--I set the bulbs in a little bit of water so the roots could start to grow (they already had a few leaves sprouting up when I bought them). Then I filled a vase with stones (you could use marbles or rocks as well) and nestled the bulbs in place so they wouldn’t tip over. Next I filled the container with water, just enough so that the bottom of the bulbs were touching the water.
Water beads and bamboo that I picked up from a flower vender at my local farmer's market. I'm completing this with a burlap ribbon tied around the top of the mason jar for a country look. I also picked up green water beads for a tulip bulb. So many flower bulbs you can grow in this. Easy DIY home decor with little upkeep thanks to the water beads! (Note: I used a half gallon mason jar for this simple project. I also put the metal rim on the jar, which isn't pictured.)
Grow your own green onions: Apparently, you just place the onions into a jar of water and put into a sunny window, rinse and refill the jar with fresh water every few days. You’re able to use the tops as needed while keeping about 1 inch of the very bottom of the onion bulb intact to put back into the water. These bottoms will regrow their tops. Kids would love to watch them grow.
