Prepared bulbs, yes. They need to be in the dark and cool until the flowerhead appears, not just until they sprout. They need to believe that Winter has passed.

Sorry Wills, I have given up on T&M their seeds are expensive and their germination rate poor.

Storing Garlic

October is usually when I plant mine, but any time up until Spring.

Drainage for Plant Box

Compost needs a balance of brown (shredded paper, cardboard) and green (vegetable matter). Leave until it has all rotted down and you can't tell what went into it and the garden and the little wiggy worms will love it.

Mould is unimportant, it all rots down in the end.

They have a beat which they will usually remain in. There is probably a different bat on the other side of the house.

Love them, even when they find their way in and they fly round the room when I'm watching TV; or in bed; or having a meal.
