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!!
