hi all,

advice needed. i bought three pots of these for a woodland area in my garden. i came to plant them today and in each pot the root ball when teased open, sort of falls away into dozens of individual bulbs. Should i be planting these separately or am i ok to transfer the whole pot into the border?

The website does say "Plant in naturalistic drifts 10cm deep and at 10cm intervals" but it hadn't occurred to me that might be 50 individual plantings.... (i might have just bought one pot if id have realised!

They are bulb plants so each one has its own bulb. Separate them into clumps for planting. Do heed the advice about removing the flower heads once they have finished flowering - they can spread and can be a pain to get rid off from the places you don't want them.
