What to put in...

Thinking that it must be time to start putting bulbs in. What things should I put in to have lovely but easy to grow flowers to pick? And what about those for nice pot displays? Can't put anything in permanently as the garden is a work in progress-well no-that's not true-the garden is trashed from building work and the ground source heat pump and isn't likely to change any time soon!! But thinking I could fill a raised bed with some bulbs to harvest.

apart from your usual daffs, crocus,tulips, try lillys loads of varieties pick some to flower every month plant 15cm down with sharp sand underneath and above to keep off the slugs plant in groups leave in ground and they will spread giving you lots of cut flowers people love

I have got some really beautiful golden yellow crocus to go in given to me by a friend from her garden.
