I already have narcissus and hyacinth bulbs in a shared pot from last year - I'd like to move the hyacinth bulbs into a pot of their own and try this layering project with the leftover narcissi and some crocus bulbs I have. Will it work if I dig the bulbs up? I don't want to kill them as they've been in their pot a year now....any guidance appreciated. Thanks.

As far as I know, digging bulbs up and replating them at this time of year should not be a problem. I would give it a go, and look forward to a lovely spring display. Good luck.

I have an acer growing in a large pot, its not done very well, with the leaves going green on the underside and then shriveling up from the outer edges. When I enquired at our local garden centre, it turns out I havent planted in the correct compost. When would be the best time to replant?

Thanks Helen
