Plant a layered pot of bulbs
This technique of layering spring bulbs, often called a bulb lasagne, is simple to do and gives spectacular results. It’s all about impact and successive blooms, so think carefully about your colour scheme and flowering times when choosing your bulbs, and pack them in tightly, with just a bulb width between each one. Put a 15cm layer of compost in a large pot, then plant early-flowering varieties, such as tulips, first. Follow with hyacinths, Anemone blanda, scilla and muscari, for example, then cover with 5cm of compost and water well. That’s it for a gorgeous flowering display from March to May.
A fun idea… for a pretty spring display
