I have hyacinths bulbs and are they spring or summer blooming bulbs, because I already submitted a question about storing them and when is a good time to plant them.

Hyacinths are spring blooming bulbs and should be planted in the fall in your garden. Since you didn't plant yours, you can try to force them into flowering indoors by setting each in a special hyacinth vase or in a glass with a narrow top that will hold the bulb half way above the water you place in the glass. The bulbs will develop roots (change the water every week) and then will sprout foliage and a flower. Enjoy!
