Re-using last years spring bulbs
Last autumn I planted out several terracotta pots and a couple of wall baskets with spring bulbs - a mixture of narcissus, tulip, muscari, crocus, hyacinth and iris. From what I can recall I planted them in a mixture of multi-purpose potting compost with potting grit for drainage. Although I emptied out the baskets at the end of the flowering period I have left most of the pots untouched except for the occasional water. I confess I haven’t fed them. My question is - will they flower again next spring if I leave them in the pots? Or am I better off lifting them and planting them in the garden? I emptied out one of the pots yesterday and the bulbs look healthy but there is a lot of root growth and I’m worried that if I transplant them now the damage to the roots will effect the flowering in spring? Any advice will be gratefully received by this gardening novice.
