    OK so it's a bit premature but I was reading about layering spring bulbs and wondered if anyone had any recommended combinations? TIA

    Monty layered a container that starts with Iris in Feb followed by Narcissus in March, then long-stemmed tulips in late April and then topped off the pot with pansies, for colour through autumn and winter.

        I did this, Queen of the night Tulips at the bottom, random tulips in the middle, then Tete a Tete on top, lovely show from t&t, then the tulips, dont recall seeing QoN, reminded me pot needs sorting as all died back now, did it for expediency really as bought a load from Wilkos at end of season sale 10p a pack if I recall correctly, but will do it again next year as a lovely display.
