Planting layered spring bulbs, also known as lasagna planting or double decker pots, is a great way to get a fabulous spring display or a staggered display that lasts several months and keeps delivering colour to your patio.

You can do this with any spring flowering bulbs and really get creative with the combinations you choose. We selected some traditional favourites for our own display, with Triumph Tulips, Dwarf Narcissi Tete-a-Tete, Bedding Hyacinth Mixed and finally large flowering crocus mixed.

Getting a long lasting pot display really couldn’t be easier, and we’ve put together this complete video tutorial from our expert Jeff Turner to show you exactly how to get the best from your spring patio displays.

You can get your own J. Parker’s spring flowering bulbs to recreate the display here: http://bit.ly/2SbLxVI

    Fantastic video! Thanks so much, I can’t wait to start with my Spring bulbs.. ♥️

    Great video😄
    I’ve just prepared my lasagne, a bit late but better late than never😂😂

  4. Keith Lynch on November 24, 2021 at 11:53 am

    Thanks for this! I’ve buried my narcissi deeper than my tulips. I’ll dig them up and re-bury them the correct way.

    How do you care for it after it’s done blooming? Once the leaves are dry, do you just leave the bulbs in the pot and store it like that until next year? Or you have to take them out and put fresh compost?

  6. theonlysuz on November 24, 2021 at 11:57 am

    You are terrific! Perfect demonstration and love seeing the results at the end. Can I plant directly into the ground in the spring or do I have to wait for the fall?

  7. amerwiccanandproud on November 24, 2021 at 11:57 am

    This was the most informative and easy to follow tutorial I’ve ever seen, thank you for this!

    What About next year?

  9. Karen Moore on November 24, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    Love this idea, and this video!

  10. Anita Patel on November 24, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    Really useful video.. Will be doing this soon.🌷🌱⚘

  11. mic r on November 24, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    What size pot have you used?

  12. Nhi Nguyễn Family Cuộc sống Mỹ Michigan on November 24, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    Fabulous video. Thanks for sharing

  13. Dennis Algabre on November 24, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    When is the best time to plant this bulb in a pit thanks

  14. bill grant on November 24, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    I like the visual display

  16. Corinne Mason on November 24, 2021 at 12:07 pm

    Nice idea, but the end result looks too congested for me. I think less would be more in this case.

  17. Allessalreggkom _ on November 24, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    I was looking for this all my life. Thank you for your wonderful video.

  18. simonacoja on November 24, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    Can I plant them in fall and where do I keep the pot over winter? Will the bulbs not freeze if outside? If inside then it’s too warm. I have a shed or garage. Do I need to water every once in a while? Or should I just plant them in February-March and leave the pot outside then? Thanks

  19. shandel cleary on November 24, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    😮 wow! Thank you for this video! I never knew you could do this! I do have a question though, do you dig the bulbs up after the season is over or do you keep the pot indoors all winter?

  20. babichevi on November 24, 2021 at 12:10 pm

    Great idea for those of us with limited space. I’m going to try this.

  21. Kiki LaHula on November 24, 2021 at 12:10 pm

    How big is your pot please? Going to do this ASAP!

  22. Big Stik on November 24, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    Anyone know what size pot was used?

  23. Ug Titto on November 24, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    So how do I store such pot during winter months in the UK? Shall I cover it to protect from the rain, occasional snow or rodents? Would it be too warm for the bulbs if I keep the pot in an attached garage? All fall-planted bulbs need chill period below 8C, hence the question. What’s your experience? Thanks

  24. sakeena sadiq on November 24, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    Brilliant accent refreshing lancashire UK yeah!! Brill great explanation got my bulbs cheap loads in the sale at Wilcos cant wait to plant at 15 p 25p a bag …cant be bad eh!!

  26. Michelle H on November 24, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    I followed these instructions last fall, eagerly awaiting my spring flowers now!

  27. M Jackson on November 24, 2021 at 12:15 pm

    Love it. I am confuse when to remove pansies?

  28. Natasha Davies on November 24, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    I have planted these and now it’s April my boring patio is blooming! However, what do I do when they are gone and its summer? Do I leave the bulbs in ready for next year?

  29. Beryl Hadwin on November 24, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    Looks lovely, going to give this a go this autumn. Can you suggest anything to prevent squirrels trying to dig the bulbs up?

  30. Mick on November 24, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    Morning,
    How did everyone else do,

  31. Laura 0 on November 24, 2021 at 12:18 pm

    Hello! What size pot would you recommend? Thank you

  32. Edwina Lowe on November 24, 2021 at 12:18 pm

    This is a great tutorial thanks. But after this container has finished flowering and the leaves have died back will it all come back next year, or do we need to lift the bulbs and replant later?

  33. Mandy Mitchell on November 24, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    Brilliant – thank you

  34. Julia Janssens ღ on November 24, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    2" Pebbles – 2" compost – T U L I P S – 2" compost – D A F F O D I L S (narcissi) – 2" compost – H Y A C I N T H S – 2" compost – CROCUS – 2" compost – pansies or polyanthus on top – THANKS FOR YOUR EXPLANATION especially the cross-section in the beginning – GREAT ! ♡♡♡🕊

  35. T L on November 24, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    Thank you so much for your amazing video. I am a complete beginner and did lasagne planting last year in August/September after watching your video. Completely forgot about it and from February have been delighted with gorgeous blossom. A nice surprise every few weeks, even now in May. Thank you so much!

  36. ELAINE P P on November 24, 2021 at 12:24 pm

    Very lovely!

  37. linda garcia on November 24, 2021 at 12:24 pm

    I’m in Texas, zone 9. Is compost different than potting mix?

  38. Joshua Wartenberg on November 24, 2021 at 12:25 pm

    Wonderful, thanks for the easy to follow video. I did my first bulbs last fall and the display is fantastic right now. I’m looking forward to trying this for next year!

  39. Sai Bliss on November 24, 2021 at 12:27 pm

    Very nice video…step by step clear instructions. Loved it 👌💕💖

  40. Abraham Champagne on November 24, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    What time of the year do I make this pot? I’m in zone 6.

  41. Gail Hyatt on November 24, 2021 at 12:29 pm

    This is a fantastic video. Thank you so much. I do have a few questions: You may have said this specifically, but when is the best time to plant these pots? I gather October or November? I live in Zone 7 in Tennessee. And, they are ok to sit outside all winter? Could a pot also be planted with layers of summer flowering bulbs? Thank you so much!

  42. dotnb on November 24, 2021 at 12:31 pm

    What time of the year do you do this?

  43. indiah rose on November 24, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    Such a lovely video. I’m going to try this in the lawn, will let you know how its turned out in 6 months. Thank you

  44. Karen Jones on November 24, 2021 at 12:37 pm

    could you plant mums on top for fall

  45. Maggie Khloe on November 24, 2021 at 12:39 pm

    ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!

  46. bowler8 on November 24, 2021 at 12:41 pm

    planted 20 bulbs, 12 came up but with only the leaves, not sure what Ive done wrong

  47. Dkay on November 24, 2021 at 12:42 pm

    Awesome ⚘🌼

  48. Catherine Stoehr on November 24, 2021 at 12:44 pm

    Hello, Northern Ontario Zone 4 question. I dig up my container hostas and put them in my vegetable garden over the winter or they won’t make it. Would it make sense to assemble the pot as you demonstrate and then actually bury the whole pot in my vegetable garden? It would take some work to clean them off in the spring but gosh it would be worth it. And it would be such a wonderful present to have all set for my friends in spring as well. Please advise and thanks for cheering me up w your lovely video on a sad-ish covid-y day!

  49. Daisy May on November 24, 2021 at 12:44 pm

    So helpful. Thank you!

  50. eve Lafferty on November 24, 2021 at 12:46 pm

    Hi. What’s the diameter of your pot? How many of each bulb have you used? Thanks
