Bluebell bulbs, can I plant them now?

    That's a perfect site for them, especially the area in the 2nd pic. Hopefully, you'll get some doing well, and then they'll spread. The ivy may encroach a bit, so you might have to keep an eye on that  :)

    If your budget allows, you can also try getting some in the green. That just means buying them after they've flowered, and is generally a better way of establishing them.
    Plenty of good, reliable bulb suppliers will have them later in the year  :)
    Tulips need a sunny site, so I'd keep them potted. The species/botanical tulips are more reliable though, but still need the same conditions. If you take a look on those good sites, you'll get info about them. Peter Nyssen, Broadleigh, Avon, Farmer Gracy etc all have plenty of info and types to look at. 
    That'll blow your budget right away..... :D

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    A good rule for gardening, and for life, is: "Do it now".
