Lasagna planting is a relatively easy and quick method of planting.  Lasagna gardening, though, may take up to six months to build up a sufficient amount of compost/soil in which to actually garden.  Planting bulbs in different layers allows for the best use of containers, and it also allows color to last in containers for a longer period of time than if bulbs are planted at only one depth.  I hope you’ll give this idea a try, because I think you’ll be pleased with the result.
