The soil composition is suitable for growing tulips

Hello, my name is Adam. I am ready to plant my tulip bulbs in containers, & wonder about what composition of soil they like. I have 6 plant troughs in Guildford, which has very clay soil, so I have bought some gravel to mix into some organic matter : Can some kind person advise approx proportions for soil mix for tulips. Troughs are 25cm deep, will this be deep enough for tulips? Planning 10bulbs per each 70cm long trough?
Sorry for reviving an old thread - it came up as I was searching for those Danceline Tulips.
Nanny Beach and anybody who tried planting this variety, can you please let me know if those tulips came back next year and if they required any special treatment when they were first planted and the next year if you kept them.
They are not very cheap to buy, so if they are just for one season, I would only buy just a few, but if they do come back next year, I might consider filling a larger planter and keep them for years to come.
