Bulb planting confusion
Suzie Bright Posts: 20
Hello. Looking for opinions please. I have a bed with daffs already planted. I’ve just bought some purple sensation allium bulbs and want to plant in the same bed. Do I need to dig up the daff bulbs and move to front of boarder and plant the alliums at the back? Or can I just put them in on top randomly? Thanks!

Not all daffs like the drier conditions alliums generally like either.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
If you don't want to risk damaging your daffs .... you could pot up the alliums individually .... depends how many you've got
Then, when the daffs are beginning to poke through in the Spring, you can pop the alliums in.
I did this when I wanted to add more alliums to an existing patch, and it worked really well.
