After a long and cold winter, crocus flowers are a welcome sight and a sign that spring is truly on its way. Plant the bulbs in the autumn either in borders, beds and containers or naturalised in grass. Some varieties will even flower in the autumn if you plant them early enough!
Crocus 'T&M Mix'For a sparkling spring show, these colourful crocuses are hard to beat. Perfect for planting in rockeries, naturalising in grass, or growing in large groups beneath trees and shrubs. Just scatter a handful of bulbs and plant them where they fall for a really natural effect. For a more compact display grow crocus in containers or window boxes where you can appreciate their jewel like flowers. Height: 10cm (4"). Spread: 5cm (2"). Bulb size: 7/8.
