What about trying layered planting this year? Planting in layers in a pot works best. The deepest layer includes the bulbs of the flowers that will bloom last. This is followed by a layer of bulbs that will bloom second, and in the topmost layer the flower bulbs that will bloom first. For even better results, be sure to soak the bulbs in Escube for at least an hour before planting, but you can leave them soaking overnight. Then just water with Escube and you're done. Look forward to beautifully blooming pots and boxes that pop with colour.
