Your garden: Help!

Byline: Pippa Greenwood

Q I STILL have some bulbs left unplanted because of the very wet weather. Many are now sprouting and have roots, is it still worth planting them?

AAS YOU know this should have been done a while ago but to be honest I think it is still worth planting them.

Assuming your soil is now somewhat drier, you can plant direct in to the soil, perhaps adding some grit and sand if the soil texture is heavy.

An alternative would be to plant them in to containers, enjoy the display they produce this year and then plant them in to a suitable spot in open ground this autumn.
