Very nice, Berghill. 

On Sunday we bought lots of shallow pots for planting up bulbs / corms in autumn ready for next spring - ideally ones that last more than a week or so. Our cyclamen coum, planted in the border, produces flowers over an 8 week period. I know that's not going to be possible with bulbs, but can you suggest anything?

Muscari latifolium is stunning and Ornithogalum montanum is a beauty.  Lovely to see these photos.

Golidlocks I am not very good at recommending plants for pots, we do not really grow any except in the garden.

WE grow vast amounts of evrything in pots, and find that bulbs are really very sucessful grown this way - but as with so many modern bulbs, they do not have long lives.  Miniature daffodils have come up year on year for about 7 years, but have now become overcrowded and split - good value as they were inexpensive.  Tulips do well, but I tend to agree with Minty, these daus treat them as annuals, though there are a few in the garden beds that do come back, it is not the rule for us.

You can gow anything in a pot as I have said many times on threads over many years, as long as you are willing to put in the effort it takes to supply all the plants needs - we have and do grow everything from tiny alpines to an oak tree in pots - but we don't go away all summer because of it!!
