Bulbs in pots

Posted: 01/10/2014 at 22:04

Hi all,Just a thought,Because i still have those Spanish Bluebells in my garden,Would it be possible to plant my English Bluebells in small pots until i've dug up the Spanish ones and then plant them out,Also i've just bought 10 Snowdrops so when will i have to plant these in pots,to plant out later.

I've only just bought the bulbs and i have heard about this naturaising[or whatever] so i thought i'd come on here and askI may plant half of them in the front garden,there's no Spanish ones around there and leave the others until i've dug the Spanish ones up in May,when they appear.Then plant the rest of the English ones next year,Does that sound OK?Also,Do they increase year on year like snowdrops do? .

I've just bought 10 English Bluebells and i plan to plant them about 14 feet from some Spanish ones.Will this have any effect on the English ones.

Thanks Yviestevie,I've only got about 3 roses out of 30 that i don't know the names of,This being one of them.From books i've seen,Ballerina looks the best bet but i will check out Rosy Cushion.Thanks again.

Could anyone tell me if this Rose is Ballerina or could it be The Fairy as they seam the 2 most likely.
