Planting

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

Plant crocus corms in Autumn for flowering the following Spring. Crocus corms have a flattened base, and slightly pointed top. They should be planted in moist, free-draining soil that has been enriched with organic compost or well-rotted manure, in a sunny, or partially sunny site. Plant the corms before the first frost.

 

Flowering

From Late Winter TO Early Spring

Crocus flowers are amongst the very first flowers to appear in late Winter or early Sring
