Planting and flowering details
Show moreAs soon as possible after receiving the Mammoth Crocus corms, they can be planted in the garden, flower pot or planter. Plant the small crocus corms in a planting hole that is three times as deep as the height of the corms. For example a corm of 2 cm should be planted in a 6 cm deep hole. The planting distance between the crocuses is about 3 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the crocus with the little point facing upwards. Refill the planting hole and avoid walking over the soil. Plant the corms one by one with a small trowel or a special bulb planter. For larger areas, make a larger planting hole to accommodate several corms. Mammoth Crocuses grow best in loose, well-drained soil in a spot in full sun or partial shade. The more crocuses planted the more the effect this spring bloomer will have. Plant the crocus in groups of at least 25, or divide about 25 to 50 corms evenly over the garden border, flower bed or even over the lawn.
Mammoth crocuses in a potMammoth Crocus grow well in a flower pot or patio container. Make sure you use fresh potting compost and put a layer of gravel or hydro granules at the bottom of the pot. Place the corms in a planting hole three times as deep as the height of the corm. For example a corm of 2 cm should be planted in a 6 cm deep hole. The planting distance in a pot is about 2 cm. To protect the small corms grown in a pot against frost, move the pot to a frost-free area or cover it with bubble wrap. Water during dry periods.
Show moreEasy to care forthe large-flowering crocus are ideal for naturalising and can be left in the same spot for years without requiring any care and attention. They will multiply and flower in abundance year after year. After flowering, leave the foliage to die down naturally and cut back when it has turned yellow. These crocus also look great planted in the lawn, but you can only mow in the spring after the leaves have turned yellow. The following spring, the large-flowering crocus will reward you once again with an abundance of colourful flowers.

Crocus - bulb, corm or tuber?The crocus is generally called a bulb or a corm and it is one of the best known spring flowers in the varieties such as tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and crocuses etc. The difference between bulbs and tubers is that a bulb is a complete plant, its food is all encapsulated in the bulb beneath the soil. A tuber is similar but its food is stored in the fleshy roots or stems. Crocus bulbs are officially corms.
