Tulips in wrong pot
Hello, I was expecting crocus in this 8”/20cm pot. As you can see, it’s tulips instead . They aren’t dwarf ones, but are small because they are crowded I think. I was redoing a border last year, and these were no doubt in the pot “temporarily”, and I forgot. I’ve never tried to move tulips when in active growth. Would this be a bad idea?

From my own experience, sometimes we get confused during the planting of bulbs, when they come out, they were in the wrong area. So what I started doing is by marking them during their blooming season, then in the following Spring when they begin growing I transplant them to where I wanted them to be, among contrasting colours, they continue to grow and enjoyed their presence at new location when they bloomed. An FYI, when I transplanted them, I always took most of the soil around their bulb and relocate them as a whole, they will then continue to grow as undisturbed - the ones that get only few soil will not bloom in the same year but will flower in the next year.
