Beginner gardener's query
I am fairly new to gardening and am wondering if some of you might fill me in with an answer to something that has been bending my brain in previous years.
I have only ever really done summer gardening. I let my garden, mainly all pots, die back in Autumn then tidy it up and leave it til Spring.
However, I have recently become a gardening addict! I'm totally loving everything to do with gardening and my yard is adorned with gorgeous pots filled with lovely growing things!
So, this year I am planning to start year-round gardening, with a colourful winter garden and then lots of flowering bulbs in the Spring. I've already ordered a lot of what I want to use. Exciting!
Anyway, what I don't fully understand is this:
All my pots and the little raised bed I have at the end of my yard are currently full of plants. Some are annuals but most are perennials which are obviously going to start shooting up in Spring. Can I plant bulbs in these pots or do I have to have fresh pots for all my bulbs (would be difficult as I haven't the room for both)?
I just don't understand how, if there are flourishing daffodils or crocuses for example in the pot, the newly shooting perennials can come through undisturbed.
Please can you advise? Sorry if I'm being a complete dimwit. Hope I've been able to explain that correctly!
