I have a planting question

When is the best time to plant Daffodils and Yellow Roses? Also How do you successfully plant them? Or would I be better getting giant plant pots and potting them in them? Am I too early or too late to plant them. I'm very new to gardening and haven't a clue of how to plant flowers. Can anybody give me any ideas of any other flowers for somebody who has never did gardening before. T.IA

    Bulbs like daffodils come into the garden centres in late summer. They come dry, not growing. This is the time to plant them. Roses grown in pots can be planted at any time, if you get some now, make sure you water them in well and give them a can of water every week when it's dry

    Bulbs are a good place to start if you're new to gardening, daffodils and crocus in particular. Then maybe some hardy annuals like cornflowers, poppies for summer colour  :)
