Zone Buffalo NY Zone 5? They changed zoning so I don't know if it's still Zone 5 | Anonymous added on September 10, 2022 | Answered

I have a number of different bulbs that I’d like to plant in pots over the winter and have them bloom in the spring/summer. I’ve seen some pictures with multiple bulbs of different flowers planted at different depths. My question is: Can any flower bulb be planted in layers with other flower bulbs? Thank you

You can do that with other bulbs but make sure the planting depth is still accurate. For example, tulips are planted several inches deep, and crocus, which could be layered on top, are planted just beneath the soil. Also, pay attention to when they bloom, some bulbs bloom early, some mid-season, and some late.

Here is an article that gives you bulbs and where they would be in the pot:
