Couple of bulb questions
Yesterday I received the GW 'free' spring bulbs offer. I'm still working out what will go where but have a couple of questions:
1) I'd like to plant the anemone St Brigid bulbs in a largeish container. What is the best compost to use, how closely can I plant them, and should I plant them in layers or not?
2) I'm thinking about naturalising the crocus (Ruby Giant) and narcissus (Tete a Tete) in lawn. First, what's the easiest way of planting them (given that I'm not strong and have shoulder problems)? I'm happy to buy a tool if it's worth the benefits. Second, is this likely to be successful given that OH doesn't like to let the grass get too long as he claims it will then be impossible to mow easily? I'm not sure when the first cut is likely to be and whether that will give the foliage long enough to die down naturally.
Thanks in advance
