    • Position: full sun or partial shade, though best in full sun
    • Soil: well-drained soil that remains moist during winter and spring
    • Rate of growth: fast-growing
    • Flowering period: from early March to May
    • Hardiness: fully hardy

      For the best possible display of spring bulbs in pots, the technique of planting pots in layers extends the period of interest and looks great. This combination can produce a display of flowers from early March through to May. On the patio or on either side of a front door they will give a scented welcome to your home in spring.

      Add some bulb fibre to your pot and plant the tulip bulbs first, 6-8in deep. Add more bulb fibre to cover them, then add a layer of hyacinths at 5in deep and fill in as before. Then a layer of Anemone blanda blue-flowered and Puschkinia scilloides var. libanotica and Muscari armeniacum planted at 1-2in deep.

      In each collection you will receive:

      15 x Muscari botryoides 'Album'
      A very pretty grape hyacinth, which produces slender white flowerspikes in spring. Less vigorous (or invasive) than its more commonly grown cousin (M. armeniacum), it provides an altogether 'finer' profile. It is perfect for pots, alpine beds, woodland floors or filling gaps at the front of sunny borders. Grows to 20cm tall

      20 x Anemone blanda 'White Splendour'
      In spring, large white daisy-like flowers (to 4cm across) emerge above the attractively lobed, dark green foliage. Each petal has a pink flushed reverse and they all sit around a boss of yellow stamens. Ideal for underplanting shrubs or trees. 15cm tall.

      5 x Hyacinthus orientalis 'Carnegie'
      Upright dense racemes of pure white, bell-shaped flowers appear in late spring. These are carried on stout stems and have a delicious fragrance. Grows to 25cm.

      20 x Crocus 'Jeanne d'Arc'
      Producing a showy display in late winter and early spring, the large, goblet-shaped blooms have white petals, which are stained with purple. Grows to 10cm tall.

      10 x Tulipa 'Mount Tacoma'
      A very old variety that has deservedly remained a firm favourite through the years. The buds are pink and green, but the long-lasting double flowers open to a creamy white. The flowers are quite tough and are held aloft on sturdy stems late in the season.. Grows to 40cm

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
