- large frost-proof container
- broken clay pot pieces
- all-purpose potting soil
- selection of bulbs: tulips, daffodils, grape hyacinth
Step 1: Prepare Your Container
Prepare your container as for bushes and perennials. Add a layer of
compost and arrange the largest bulbs, such as daffodils, on top. Plant
them twice as deep as the height of the bulb.
Step 2: Cover and Plant Small Bulbs
Cover the bulbs with a layer of compost, then plant slightly smaller
bulbs, such as tulips. Ensure the pointed tips of your bulbs are facing
up, and space them closer than recommended on the packet.
Step 3: Set Pot on "Feet"
Cover the bulbs with a layer of compost, then plant small bulbs, such as
grape hyacinths (Muscari) on top. Cover with compost, and set the pot
on “feet” to prevent waterlogging. Place in a sunny spot to flower.
