Hyacinth bulb sizes

In the past, very large hyacinth bulbs were sold as "exhibition size" 
confirming Jim McKenney's suggestion that they were used for forcing. 
The smaller (though still larger than what we're offered today) were 
sold as "landscape" size. There was, naturally enough, a disparity in 
pricing with larger = more costly.

Judy in New Jersey where frosted pumpkins still lay about in some 
fields, cannas became slimy blackened mess to cut back and bring under 
cover. And in my greenhouse oxalis are flowering, lachenalia are 
growing, and the seasonal cycle continues.
