A great all-round crocus bulb traditional mix.

A mix of classic crocus colours to give a bright splash early on in the spring. Perfect for growing  underneath trees, or for planting in grass where they will  naturalise readily.

Nothing beats the sight of a swathe of colourful crocus peeping through grass.

The goblet-shaped cups open wide in spring sunshine and  provide valuable early nectar for bumblebees and foraging insects as well as delighting us.

Crocuses are also perfect for under planting permanent shrubs in containers, or use them in shallow containers or troughs for spring displays either on their own or teamed with bedding plants such as violas and pansies or similarly coloured primulas.

Plant the bulbs around twice their depth into free draining soil, they will tolerate part shaded positions but give their best display in a sunny site.

There is no need to lift crocuses after flowering, but if planting in grass delay mowing  until the crocus leaves have died down; this directs energy back to the bulbs.

 

How you receive your bulbs

You receive our spring-flowering bulbs in autumn in a plastic mesh. This is to keep the bulbs together in a pack which is nice and airy – perfect to keep the bulbs healthy while in transit. 

Can’t plant straight away?

Keep your bulbs in a cool, light and dry place and preferably hanging on a hook so that air can get to the bulbs at all angles. Look to planting your bulbs within a week of receiving them.
