Depends on size of bulbs.....the very small varieties can be "packed" in.  Others like purple sensation I pot up singly in 1 litre pots or 3 to 3 litre pot.

Nick I have a couple of beds of heathers that must be 30 years old.  They are the winter flowering carnea type flower right now.....and are trimmed reasonably hard every spring.  Excellent value plants giving evergreen foliage, lots of flowers over winter and suppress weeds.

Best organic fertiliser

Roger, simply because I believe organic fertilisers help condition the soil itself whereas artificial ones simply feed the plants.  It's the difference between eatIng,wholesome foods and just taking vitamin pills.

The  constant use of artificial fertilisers like Gromore damage soil life, in my opinion.

Hiya red dahlia

Just set them in pots.  I often plant daffs, tulips, alliums etc in pots to put out in the spring. They will be just fine.
