Bulbs. Lots of leaves but no flowers.

I'd hoped to have miniature iris ready to bring into the house for Easter but there's no sign of ant flowered, just lots of leaves. Likewise various narcissi I planted in pots last Autumn, all roughly twice depth of the bulb. Where have I gone wrong? Is it the depth, as the shop bought ready potted ones someone gave me have the bulbs barely covered with compost?

You could try planting your bulbs deeper; about 3 times the depth of the bulb. (My miniature iris flowered long before Easter...)

Give them a few years to settle in. They will collect energy through their leaves.
