Repot lifted tulips

I’d kept quite a lot of rather small tulip bulbs after lifting them in spring. I planted ‘Don Quichotte’ and ‘Sorbet’ in pots on their own, and ‘Monte Carlo’, ‘Helmar’ and miscellaneous lily flowered tulips in a big bowl. Unless they do surprisingly well I won’t bother to keep tulips after the first year in future.

Washingtonia robusta

I got my  plant in August 2019 and put it in a terracotta pot. The plant label said hardy to -5° C, and I’ve kept it outside ever since, but it hasn’t looked entirely happy.

The RHS says it can be kept outside in the summer, but not below +5°C, so I’ve brought it inside for the winter.
