My favourite crocus on emerging 💜🤍💛#crocus #crocussieberisubspsublimistricolor purple, then thin band of white, with a yellow base. Always wondered why they dont consider it quad coloured as the flower tube colour adds to the effect too
@richard.spicer.7906 any chance I can burn ya ears mate. I’ve had my two lemon trees in the greenhouse. For weeks now with a heater. And I woke up this morning to finding soot everywhere. I’ve cleaned them down and taken off the bad leaves. But any ideas on giving these a boost. So I don’t lose them. I will never use a paraffin heater again.
Hi Wayne, sorry to hear that. Sounds like a nightmare. Not sure I’m able to help as I’ve never grown citrus before. The only thing I can suggest is to keep caring for it as you would normally in winter until spring - not sure if this rhs link will help perhaps 👍🏼 https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/grow-your-own/.fruit/citrus
21/02/19 - Crocus Update - this is one of my favourite Crocus, and as the name suggests it has this wonderful tricolour pattern on the tepals as it emerges, and if you throw in the colour of the perianth tube as well then it could be quad coloured 😄 - purple, white band, yellow base, and when they open up they are exactly the same inside. Been in the polytunnel for the last hour watering, absolute bliss in here and very nice temp 😎☀️💛💜
Seems I did take a photo after all of this one. I couldn’t find any the other day but I take so many sometimes I forget what I’ve taken, posted etc.. #crocus #tricolourcrocus #crocus-sieberi #Crocussieberisubspsublimistricolor
I forgot to post this one a month ago, it’s long since gone but adding it to my plant list. I didn’t catch it before it faded unfortunately so will be hoping for a return visit next year #crocus #tricolourcrocus #crocus-sieberi #Crocussieberisubspsublimistricolor
Hi there. They are lovely💚 I have some of these. They faded as well. Do you know what should I do for keeping them alive in summer amd winter? ( watering, protecting from mines winter degrees etc.) @richard.spicer.7906
Hi @pietalou - you should let them die back naturally over summer, so that the foliage dies down slowly. Crocus like to be dormant during the summer months, I allow mine to still get some rain every now again so that they don't fully dry out completely, then in late autumn and early winter they will soon start to wake up as temperatures decrease. Most crocus are winter hardy but I don't know which ones you have so best to check. Hope that helps 😊👍🏼
