When forcing bulbs indoors can I force tulips, narcissus, grape hyacinths, dutch iris and snowdrops using gravel and water as the medium. Jon

Absolutely. If you don't want to plant them in potting soil you can certainly start them in water and gravel. You'll need the gravel to help anchor the roots. Immerse the bulbs only about half way into the water and gravel. Hope you have great success with your bulbs!
