In autumn, half fill the pot with compost and plant bulbs on the surface. Cover with compost to almost fill the pot, water thoroughly and leave until spring.
In spring, once the bulbs have grown and started to flower, fill around the edges with low-growing plants. Knock the pansies and crocuses from their pots and place equally around the edges of the pot. Fill around the gaps, and water well.
