Plant Up Bulbs

Follow Steps 1 to 3. Evenly space the narcissi bulbs on the layer of soil, and plant the rest of the plants carefully between them.

Finishing Touches

Fill in around the plants and cover the bulbs with soil, up to about 3 in (8 cm) from the rim. Add a few grape hyacinth bulbs between the plants and then cover with soil to about 1 in (2 cm) from the rim. Firm gently and water.

Top Tip: Caring for Pansies

Winter-flowering pansies will bloom throughout the cold winter months, although they put on their best performance in spring. Remove the dying flowers as you see them, and if plants become straggly in spring, renovate them by cutting the stems back to 3 in (8 cm). Then apply an all-purpose fertilizer and water in well.
