My hyacinth has finished blooming and I've noticed the bulb is badly split. Does this mean that it is seriously damaged and of no more use?

Hi @King86633
After the Hyacinth has finished flowering, if you plant it so that the top of the bulb is at or just below the soil surface, it will use its leaves to create a new bulb. After it has finished creating a new bulb, the leaves will die and the bulb can then either be left in the soil or dug up and stored.
