I've got some mixed tubs, one has hyacinths, tete a tetes, primroses, ivies, pansies and a little 'spire' of a fir tree and it will sit on the front porch all winter, with something of interest happening all the time.
I've planted some pots with pink tulips and pale blue muscari, both of which should flower at about the same time, and some pots of just one variety of bulb - a terracotta trough filled with creamy white crocuses with golden stamens, and another with large stripey purple ones,and I've got some pots of violas and yet more just of pansies. And next weekend I'll be potting up three different bowls of specie tulips.
Oh, and there's a big pot with two big bulbs of Fritillaria Imperalis waiting for spring.
