It's about enjoyment though, isn't it Pat?  Who cares about the deadheading really? 

Online plant suppliers?

Posted: 28/11/2015 at 07:42

Sam, yes they are excellent.

have ordered from them quite a few times and service....plant condition on arrival, prompt delivery and communications first class

only once did a plant not do well for me from them.  They re supplied without quibble and with friendliness.

as you say, Jacksons are cheaper than gc and many other online suppliers but plants supplied are of good size

order with confidence Sam

mags, look if you feel happier with them in the ground then get them in. plant deep and mark with a cane.  If you know where you want them and space is available they will be fine.  If you have heavy or wet soil put a handful of grit under the bulbs.

currently I am planting in pots and in the ground.....I do same with tulips, daffs and alliums with potted ones for later planting

Hiya Fairy, that's why I said to plant deeper in early spring.  Mags did say she would plant out in spring. I pot up 4 bulbs in 5" pot ...unless esp large large like some of the Regale where I plant one per pot......and they perform well.
