i met a guy years ago he grew bulbs in ceramic pots.
he was a bulb fanatic.
every type of bulb had its own container.
every end of season he would take the pots down from his patio and give them special treatment.
in a way it sounds logical....
but......is it necessary to control each type botanically?
some to leave in the ground...some to take out and dust....
and what about the visual effect of multicolor multi texture multi shape?
it also needs more pots to handle...
i also heard that it is good to stuff many bulbs together and ignore spacing requirements written on the package

You can combine bulbs, some would do that, since some bulbs bloom ahead of the other bulbs or for more colorful visual impact. Just give ample space between bulbs as you do it, and make sure you have good drainage.

I found this page, read through it, it helps explain container planting of spring bulbs Smiling

No reason you couldn't plant more than one kind in a pot, but most people do not. Unless you were very lucky they would not bloom at the same time.

If you are forcing bulbs to bloom out of season, or one time for a gift you can crowd them in a pot and get one season of bloom, then they will probably not bloom again for years. If you want your bulbs to bloom year after year you must give them room, water and fertilizer to regenerate the bulbs after they bloom.
