I planted my tulips in troughs this year, and they have been spectacular (sorry to rub it in). The only disappointment was that the deep burnt-orange ones were a bit more peachy. I had intended a full colour clash with strong purple and deep red, but it didn't quite go to plan. But I'll try again next year.
btw am I the only one who doesn't see the point of yellow tulips? After all the yellow daffs, I want something different - and love the strong colour splash that tulips can offer. Yellow tulips just seem - well, a bit of the same colour palette, and a bit boring as a result.
