I have been doing the SR bulb lasagne thing in a huge plastic pot where I grew my runners in the summer. I planted two layers of tulips (40 bulbs in all), and then found I still had plenty of room at the top for a 3rd layer, but no more bulbs left to plant. So off to the GC where I bought 5 very small plastic pots, each containing 3 or 4 well sprouted tete a tete daffodils, with leaves about 3" high and some buds already showing, and all the bulbs sitting well above the compost level. The roots are nearly 3" long and probably slightly interwoven. Would I kill them if I split them up before planting in the pot? I'm afraid that if I plant them in their present clumps, the tulips underneath will not have so much room to spread out evenly over the surface of the pot. What would you do?
