Just as you think winter will never end, Crocus bulbs push 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 Crocus bulbs?
The Crocus corm is a very versatile and hardy bulb – you can plant them 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, they provide superb contrast next to daffodils.
Crocus bulbs are both perennial and will naturalise, meaning they spread organically, and will re-bloom year after year with minimum care, creating larger and larger displays as time goes by.
Planting crocus bulbs in grass
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 corms 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.

What our customers say
Gee Tee customer services
Gee Tee customer services were polite, pleasant and helpful when I made an enquiry about my order. The corms looked healthy and were just beginning to sprout when we planted them. I can’t review if they flower in the colour ordered until next year! So far, I am very happy with my order.
