Top five tips from Keith for planting your spring bulbs: 

1. Plant your tulip bulbs from mid-October to November
2. Plant daffodil bulbs in September
3. Deadhead your tulips if you want them to re-flower the following year
4. Add pink forget-me-nots to pink tulip beds to create a wonderfully pretty contrast
5. For container planting – to extend the flowering season and ensure your pots and containers look full, double layer your tulip bulbs. Add the first layer of bulbs and cover with a couple of inches of compost, then add a second layer and top with compost
