25 Bulbs.   Small and mighty, the Crocus is the most important bulb of the Spring season.  These early flowers emerge in February and March,  simply a crucial source of food for early bees.  Bee a hero!  Plant Crocus!  

 

Crocus corms and bulbs are perfect for pots, borders and for planting in lawns in Autumn.  They can naturalise in grass which means over the years they will multiply.   You can either create planting holes in turf or lift turf and plant underneath,  they always find their way through.  Plant them a minimum depth of three times the bulb.  They have contractile roots meaning if not planted at the correct depth the roots will contract to pull the bulb deeper.  Try and save them the effort of doing this by planting nice and deep.   

 

Full sun areas are best, as the bulb foliage likes to be baked in the sun to aid flowering in subsequent years.  To further help your bulbs return year on year, add gravel to the base of the planting hole to create good drainage.  Once flowering is finished cut off the entire flowering stalk right down to the base to prevent the bulb wasting energy to create seeds.  This ensures all the energy is returned to the bulb for flowering the following year.  Allow all foliage to die back naturally as this process also feeds the bulb.  Since this is crucial for repeat flowering the Crocus is perfect in grass as the foliage die back happens well before grass cutting starts.   

 

To minimise unnecessary packaging our bulb collections are sold in brown paper bags designed for easy composting/recycling.
