Planting flower bulbs: how about flower bulb lasagne?
No, this isn't a new recipe; we're talking about a technique for planting flower bulbs called lasagne planting. Use this simple method to turn your empty flower pots into explosions of colour. And no, you can't eat them.
Flower bulb lasagne:
Simply put, lasagne planting involves making layers with flower bulbs organised in the order in which they flower, so you get different kinds of flowers that you can enjoy for months on end. It's important that the bulbs that flower last are planted at the bottom, so make sure that you put them in the pot first and put the bulbs that flower first on top. Don't forget the layer of potting soil in between each layer of bulbs, just like the layers of source in a lasagne.
