Learn how to create a long-lasting display of spring flowers by planting bulbs in layers in a deep terracotta pot during autumn. Kevin Smith shows you how much compost to use, which order to plant the different sizes of spring bulbs in, how far apart to space them, and how much compost to add between the layers. The vibrant yellow display comprises daffodils, tulips and crocuses. It’s a great way to get maximum flower power from a small space.
