If you want a spring-flowering display to go on as long as possible, plant separate layers of different varieties of bulbs in one pot. All you need to create a display which flowers in succession is a large pot and a variety of bulbs that will flower at different times. Here, we’ve used two varieties of daffodil, which flower at different times. But you can also layer pots with mixed bulbs, including tulips, daffodils and crocus.

How to do it

Fill the base of the pot with compost and plant a layer of large-flowered daffodils on top. Cover with a little compost.




Next plant a layer of tulips. Spread the bulbs out generously across the surface and cover with more compost.

Our tip

Daffodils benefit from early planting (in September) but tulips are best left to a November planting.
