Just as you think winter will never end, the Crocus pushes through the snow to break the icy cold with vibrant early Spring colour.
The spectrum covers pink, red, orange, yellow, purple, blue and more, with many having strong scents that will lure bees out of their hives as early as February.
Why grow Crocuses?
The Crocus bulb is a very versatile bulb – you can plant Crocuses just about anywhere, from tiny pots to great carpets of colour.
Like other bulbs, such as the snowdrop and bluebell, these are most impressive when planted in large numbers. In late February or early March, the contrast that Crocuses give flowering against yellow daffodils is superb.
Crocus bulbs offer more benefits in that they are both perennial and naturalise, meaning they spread organically, and will re-bloom year after year with minimum care, creating larger and larger displays as time goes by.
If you want your crocus to naturalise in grass, the quickest and most effective way is to use a spade to cut under and peel back the turf.
Break up the soil and scatter the crocus bulbs randomly, then simply roll back the turf. Be sure to avoid mowing the grass for a couple of weeks after flowering until the foliage has died back.
