Hmmmmm!  Anyone buying a tulip spade is prob a bit eccentric . "Eccentric" is good

Buttercup, many of those I would have suggested too.

Love Gardening , use in layers well mixed.  

Never use old fertilisers, chemicals or bagged feeds..... Chemical structure change and diseases are likely.  Use them in one year . Better safe than sorry
