Gardening: RHS expert shares how to plant bulbs in containers and avoid ‘rot in the pot’

Alex said: “To do this, all I need is my container, my watering can topped up with water, my trowel, a trug full of peat-free multi-purpose compost, and my main ingredient that I’ll be planting today: Narcissus ‘Prom Dance’.

“So to start off with, I’ve got my free-draining multi-purpose compost and we want to make sure it’s free draining, because the last thing you want is for the compost to hold too much water, and your bulbs to rot in the pot.”

Bulbs can be infected by fungi and bacteria which can cause rot and mould.

This can often happen when the bulb is sat in the soil over the winter months.
