Planting Bulbs in Non-Draining Pot
I'm new at gardening and hope someone can help me out here. We purchased a new place and the previous owner built a water fountain in the back yard. Fountain is about 4 feet diameter, 3 feet deep. We're looking to convert the water fountain into a flower bed because energy is expensive in CA and we can't have standing water due to mosquito issues. The fountain is similar to a huge pot and has NO drainage at all.
I'm wondering if it's ok to plant bulbs in a non-draining fountain. If so, what kind of soil should I use?
Thanks in advance,
