Sarah’s advice on planting tulips 
• Plant between October and December. Planting after the first frost has set avoids the risk of disease. • Choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil, or add grit to the planting hole to aid drainage.
• Plant at 20cm deep and 8cm apart. These collections also work well in pots. Use a loam-based compost with added grit, or a peat-free, multi-purpose compost with added manure and grit.
