Thanks guys! Obelixx that's what I wondered, the pots at Harlow Carr were like half barrels and I wondered how deep you could really plant things before they suffered a bit, so that answers that.. 4thPanda that's an interesting idea, and alliums too I was just thinking spring bulbs but I've got some allium bulbs so I might pop them in too. I've got some Iris Reticulata too from this years pots and I hadn't thought about them either. I can't decide what to do now so I think I'm going to do a few pots and see how they go, I think I'll do one with deep pink tulips and muscari as Dovefromabove suggested a bit like the crocus one, and one with scented white narcissus and maybe daffs and yellow and white tulips and blue chinodoxa or muscari and maybe a hotch-potch one with a bit of everything. These darker evenings are making me come in earlier and look at plants online, dangerous for my bank balance..

Hi Shimmy!

I grow my fuchsias outside and don't have a conservatory so I take cuttings now of the ones I want to keep until next year and they come on fine.

Thanks Emma! We have a Lidl not too far away, sounds like it's worth a look especially at that price

I'm answering myself, not sure if this is a sign of insanity chatting to yourself on an online forum.

I had a look a bit more online for it, and they call this 'bulb lasagne', sounds delicious. They sell sets of bulbs in a few places, I found some really pretty ones on Crocus, and I think there was a discount code in the magazine so I'll need to check at home, there's one at the link below which is gorgeous (blues and plum coloured tulips), and Sarah Raven has some sets too.

I'd like to fill a deep pot with layers of bulbs, and I'd like some advice please, has anyone done it before?
