I have just finishes potting my Tulip collecton. I always try to find a
croc which fits neatly for tulip pots.
They then form a nest around the croc unless the pots are really deep. I
have a nice form of T. vvedensky lose in the sand on my bench for small
pots, due to a poorly fitted croc 4 years ago. see here…
