Choose a large a pot with good drainage holes and place a layer of gravel at the bottom to improve drainage; alternatively a well-drained potting mix (such as Coolings Professional Compost 35L, £4.99) will also do the trick. Once you have your first layer of potting medium in the pot, begin with your large, lateflowering bulb (tulips or anemones).
Place the bulbs close together but don’t let them touch each other or the sides of the pot.
Now add a layer of soil, and firm it down lightly around your bulbs. You can now plant your mid-spring layer (hyacinths). Add more potting compost (the ‘pasta’).
Plant your final layer of early bloomers (crocus). Cover them with potting soil, add water and wait for the results come spring.
The lasagne planting packs are available in three colour themes: pink-blue, redpurple and white, £9.99 per pack.
