Rich flowering for many years of gardening pleasure.Show more
Planting and flowering details
Show moreAs soon as possible after receiving the Botanical Crocus corms, they can be planted in the garden, flower pot or planter. Plant the small 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 them is about 3 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the crocus with the point facing upwards. Refill the planting hole and avoid walking over the soil. Plant the corms one by one with a small trowel. For larger areas, make a larger planting hole and plant extra corms. The botanical crocus mix grows best in loose, well-drained soil in a spot in full sun or partial shade. The more crocus you plant the greater 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.
Botanical Crocus in a potThe botanical crocus mix grows well in a flower pot or a 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 corms. A corm of 2 cm should be planted in a 6 cm deep hole and 2 cm apart. To protect the 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 moreBotanical Crocus are excellent for naturalising. Once planted the corms can be left undisturbed in subsequent years. They will produce more flowers each year, creating a glorious natural feature in the garden. After flowering, leave the foliage to die down naturally and cut back when it has turned yellow. They look great planted in the lawn, but you can only mow in the spring after the leaves have turned yellow. The following spring the Botanical Crocus will flower in greater abundance.

This low cormous plant flourishes equally as well in a flower pot or patio pot. The Botanical Crocus have smaller flowers and form a glorious palette of mixed colours in white, yellow and purple. Take a closer look into the small heart to admire the thick yellow-orange stamens. The yellow crocus has a distinguished striped pattern on the outside of the petals. Crocus survive well against the snow and the cold weather.
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.
