just a quick question re the spring bulbs I've just planted in tubs... do I need to water them, or do I just leave them now and keep fingers crossed for them coming to life in 6 months?

nothing
you just leave them and hope the squirrels don't eat them all.

you are a bit early, though. they should be planted in october or so once iy gets cold

Personally I would give them a bit of water to get them started, particularly if the compost is dry. THEN just leave them.

Oh this is interesting
I'm thinking of trying a small tub of crocuses too
So after I plant them, when do they need watering? I wasn't planning to buy any till October but mum said they might vanish from the shops. Is it better to but them and store them somewhere?

PS this is on a balcony so they won't get rain.
