How should spring bulbs be planted for forcing?

Plant in clay pots—5-inch size for a single exhibition-size hyacinth bulb; 6-inch or larger for several standard-size bulbs. Use good-quality, general-purpose potting soil. Set the bulbs so their tips just show at the soil surface. Space several bulbs for one pot about 1 inch apart. Water thoroughly. Set in a cold place.
