1 HOUR to make a dif­fer­ence

If time is short, fo­cus on one sat­is­fy­ing task – and the rest of the gar­den can wait

Country Living (UK) - - Cl Promotion -

There is still plenty of time to plant bulbs for next year, and a quick and easy way to do this is in plas­tic pots that can be dropped into bor­ders and con­tain­ers later on. Line up a whole se­ries of pots and fill them with a mix of multi-pur­pose and loam-based com­post for added nu­tri­ents, plus some grit to aid drainage. For a strong dis­play, plant bulbs closely, un­til al­most touch­ing. La­bel them and keep in an open po­si­tion in the gar­den un­til they start to emerge. Wa­ter oc­ca­sion­ally if the weather is dry.
