I have bought pots of tete a tete like this before too.  If you are planting them in the garden do you still follow the "plant at depth twice the size of the bulb" rule.  Ie do you bury them green shoots and all?

Can i grow a Mahonia in a pot?

Many thanks for all your replies. It will only need to survive in a pot for a bit, because there will soon be a bed of soil in said courtyard.  Think I will need one of the prickly ones to stop the deer having a munch.  Will check out the RHS site too.

I'd keep them in the small pots - they flower better if they are pot bound
