I spotted some Spanish bluebells in the new garden we're moving to soon. They'll get nuked the minute they have enough greenery on to absorb some weedkiller.
Meanwhile, bulbs can planted in pots and kept cool but sheltered from frosts and then displayed or planted out where you have spaces and gaps next spring. I leave all my bulbs in situ - snowdrops, crocuses, daffs, hyacinths, snowflakes, tulips, alliums, nectarospordums - and don't lift any once they're in the ground. I only grow botanical tulips as the bigger hybrids don't do in my garden and I only try the botanicals in teh sunniest, best drained beds. T
