A great way to get a succession of blooms all spring is to plant up one large container with several layers of different bulbs. It also gives you maximum flower power in a small space. In this practical Gardeners' World video guide, Monty Don takes you through the process of creating a layered spring container display that starts with Iris reticulata in February, followed by Narcissus Tête-à-Tête in March, and then elegant long-stemmed purple tulips (Tulipa 'Negrita') in late April. He then tops off the pot with pansies, for colour through autumn and winter.
Inject some colour into your winter planting schemes with this beautiful collection of heathers. These ericaceous plants are ideal for containers and look fantastic with spring bulbs as well as compact winter shrubs and grasses.
