Camassia bulbs & Allium bulbs

Posted: 27/10/2016 at 12:31

🙋🏼 please may I ask for advice on the type of soil which is best for planting Camassia bulbs & Allium bulbs.  ive bought some online & they are arriving today for me to plant n this Guildford garden, (my daughters) where everything is grown in containers of some sort, because the soil is poor ( a mixture of clay & rubble, left by builders ! 😟).  Is there a speciific "potting soil" for bulbs?    As well, how often should I water them now, during winter months, & when would I start "feeding them" /or not ?   "Thankyou" 😊 🌹  all advice will be most welcome 😃

can someone please help identify the plant in this photograph?  It bears red berries & am hoping it will look good for Christmas in the garden.

plus:  can you give me any suggestions for any other plants/shrubs to plant now for colour in my pots & hanging baskets at Christmas time?  to brighten up the season ?  

"Thankyou" so much -

I have 2 Flamingo trees in pots, one is 4 months old (new this year) ,the other 3 years old. Both have been splendid this year.  I want to transplant them into beautuful larger clay pits I have been given.  Can I transplant them now, in early October?  And can you advise me on soil preference as I will need to add soil.
