Planting tulips

may I ask another kind member to give me some feedback on tulip planting times.  

1) A friend has a huge amount of garden they need help developing,  with heaps of space, & I am helping.  Slowly I would like to start by seeing groups of white tulips on some of the empty presently grassy banks, & in clumps in spots of the several lawns too perhaps.  

2) I still have white tulip bulbs I didnt get around to plant before Christmas.  will they flower still this season ?

all helpful tips & advice will be appreciated.

 Could another kind member please identify the name of these plants for me ?  And how often do they need watering ?  Haven’t bought them before & stupidly thrown away the label 🙄 Thankyou 😊

may I please seek advice about which bulbs I can plant for the plant troughs I now have on my bedroom windowsill? I like only white flowers.  So I am thinking in terms of snowdrops, or crocus perhaps or even hyancinth  ?  looking for ideas & tips on planting soil, etc 🤔 

 thankyou 😊

Tulip planting

i am ready to plant my tulip bulbs in containers, & wonder about what composition of soil they like. I have 6 plant troughs in Guildford, which has very clay soil, so I have bought some gravel to mix into some organic matter :  Can some kind person advise approx proportions for soil mix for tulips.  Troughs are 25cm deep, will this be deep enough for tulips? Planning 10bulbs per each 70cm long trough (?)

thankyou, Tads 🤔
