Spring bulbs....daffodils and tulips
I grew most of my spring bulbs in containers this/last year - when should I consider replenishing the compost?
They were all fed with half strength tomato feed until the foliage died right back and have since been sitting round the side of the house. Thanks



We re-pot our bulbs every summer whilst they are dormant. I would do this now, Scottish.

Replenishing the compost also allows you to see what is in the pot - any grubs, dead bulbs etc (though I hope you find neither!).
