    For the best possible display of spring bulbs in pots, the technique of planting pots in layers extends the period of interest and looks great. This combination can produce a display of flowers from early March through to May. On the patio or on either side of a front door they will give a scented welcome to your home in spring.

    In each collection you will receive the following:

    15 x Muscari botryoides 'Album'
    A very pretty grape hyacinth, which produces slender white flowerspikes in spring. Less vigorous (or invasive) than its more commonly grown cousin (M. armeniacum), it provides an altogether 'finer' profile. It is perfect for pots, alpine beds, woodland floors or filling gaps at the front of sunny borders. Grows to 20cm.

    20 x Anemone blanda 'White Splendour'
    In spring, large white daisy-like flowers (to 4cm across) emerge above the attractively lobed, dark green foliage. Each petal has a pink flushed reverse and they all sit around a boss of yellow stamens. Ideal for underplanting shrubs or trees. Grows to 15cm.

    5 x Hyacinthus orientalis 'Carnegie'
    Upright dense racemes of pure white, bell-shaped flowers appear in late spring. These are carried on stout stems and have a delicious fragrance. Grows to 25cm.

    20 x Crocus 'Jeanne d'Arc'
    Producing a showy display in late winter and early spring, the large, goblet-shaped blooms have white petals, which are stained with purple. Grows to 10cm.

    10 x Tulipa 'Mount Tacoma'
    A very old variety that has deservedly remained a firm favourite through the years. The buds are pink and green, but the long-lasting double flowers open to a creamy white. The flowers are quite tough and are held aloft on sturdy stems late in the season. Grows to 40cm.

    Garden care: Add some bulb fibre to your pot and plant the tulip bulbs first, 15-20cm deep. Add more bulb fibre to cover them, then add a layer of hyacinths at around 12cm deep and fill in as before. Then a layer of Anemone blanda 'White Splendour' and Puschkinia scilloides var. libanotica and Muscari botryoides planted at 2.5-5cm deep.
