I'm sure the leaves and flowers will bend round the upper ones and find their way out. If one of the upper layer ones gets pushed up you can always put it back.
I wouldnt deliberately do it, but am sure have done in the past. The bulbs all come up fine. They will find their way upwards no problem. J.
Wouldn't worry too much about it, I always plant largest bulbs at the bottom like daffs, then slightly larger ones such as tulips and then the smaller ones on top. They all always find their way up to the surface
yes ,trying out this very year,so far so good at least ,Have daffs coming up as I type.
They do this on Beechgrove, and they have no trouble with bulbs being above other buls as they say the lower bulb will grow around a bulb above it to get to the surface of the soil.
A sink is just a big pot. Just leave the plug out for a drainage hole, and put plenty of crocks or large gravel in the bottom for drainage.
I always plant my tulips in pots in a jam-packed double layer... fantastic show for one year, but don't expect same show following year, so I bin them and start again.
In bulb layering the first flowering bulb goes into dormancy , it won't need water where as other bulbs would need. Then how to water the pot?
