Can I plant spring bulbs in beside perennials
I have lots of perennials in pots in my garden, I'd like to plant some bulbs in pots in time for spring. Is it possible to plant the bulbs in the same pots my perennials are in. Or should I buy new pots? plants My perennials are begining to die back now and I am planning to dead head them.

I think I would get new pots. Often people plant bulbs in a pot, then plant pansies on top. The bulbs will come through the pansy foliage.
Since your perennials are already established, I don't think I would go digging around them and disturb the roots. If it's a perennial that needs to be divided, you could add some bulbs at the same time you are dividing your perennial.
