This question was asked by
Graham –

Hi just received my order of Allium Globemaster just wondering if they can be planted in pots if so what size would the pot have to be for 3 bulbs
Cheers Graham

HI Graham

Yes they can be planted in pots – ensure there is plenty of drainage, I would suggest planting 3 Allium Globemaster bulbs in a 18″ patio type pot.

How many tulip bulbs for a 5x5ft bed?

This question was asked by
Susan –

I have a raised bed 5ft by 5ft .l would like to plant tulips in the bed for the Spring. How many bulbs do I need to fill the space?

Hi Susan

It really depends on how packed you would like the bed. For a fuller display, I would recommend planting 100-150 tulip bulbs for this area.

Daffodils for long flowering display

This question was asked by
David B – 

I could do with about 500 bulbs, different varieties, but split across the flowering time, so we get the longest display.

What can you do?

Hi David

We now have a new sear engine on our website where you can filter the varieties by flowering month. So you could enter May and choose which ones you like, then April and so forth.
Narcissi

I would suggest the following:

March Flowering:

Narcissus ‘Replete’ (Pack of 20 Bulbs) (harts1137121)

Narcissus ‘Dutch Master’ (Pack of 20 Bulbs) (harts113711)

April Flowering:

Narcissus ‘My Story’ (Pack of 15 Bulbs) (harts113712212)

Alliums Need to go in pot (whiskey barrel)

This question was asked by
Debbie W – 

Need help with number of bulbs – don’t want them too tall.
Late spring to Early Summer.
Colours blue purple.

HI Debbie

You mention Alliums for potting up into a Whiskey Barrel – some alliums can be quite tall. I would suggest using our filter search at the top of the Allium page and opting for the Low or Medium Heights. This will then show you all the varieties that are not too tall.

Are you wanted to plant other bulbs as well? You can do this by layering your planting. We have more information on our website on how to layer your planting here.

With regards to the number of bulbs, it really depends on the size of the barrel and the size/height of the bulbs you would like to have. For a more fuller and mixed arrangement, I would advise starting with the following:

1 x Pack of Allium Rosy Dream (10 Bulbs)
1 x Pack of Hyacinth Paul Herman (6 Bulbs)
1 x Pack of Muscari Marleen (20 Bulbs)

I need a dwarf tulip to complement Estella Rynveld. What do you suggest and do you have it in stock?

Hello there

We have the following dwarf tulips that I think would work very well with Estella Rynveld:

Tulip ‘Concerto’ (harts11401)

Or for a bolder contrast:
Tulip ‘Stresa’ (SKU1762111)

When is the best time to plant tulips?

We advise planting tulip bulbs in the Autumn, preferably in October/November, after the firsts frosts as this will wipe out any viral and fungal diseases that may be in the soil and which may infect the bulbs. Planting later in the year means there is less risk of disease and this is when the tulip bulbs start putting their roots down. More information on how to plant tulips can be found here:
