Why We Love It

The 'Prins Clays' Crocus will bring a vibrant burst of purple to your garden.

These goblet-shaped flowers bloom in early spring and can be grown in rockeries, containers and lawns or grouped under trees.

Purple flowers edged with white. Bee friendly.

Crocus will grow in a wide range of soils provided there is good drainage. They like sunshine but the flowers will last longer in partial shade.

Excellent for naturalising (leaving in for flowers year after year).

Suitable for rockeries, between shrubs and in any kind of container.

When planting, place wire netting just under the soil surface to prevent mice of squirrels eating the corms.

Planting Calendar

Plant in June, July, August, September, October, November.

Flowers in February, March.

Planting and Care

Plant bulbs in autumn in full or partial sun and water sparingly. They like gritty, poor to moderately fertile well-drained soil of any pH.  

These bulbs should ideally be planted at a depth of 5cm/2 inches and a distance of 5cm/2 inches.

Into the Ground

  1. Use a fork to loosen the soil.
  2. Mix in some organic compost.
  3. Dig a hole two times the depth of the bulbs.
  4. Place the bulb so that the pointed tip is facing upwards.
  5. Backfill the hole and water well.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a container that is large enough to plant your bulbs 8 cm deep and 8 cm apart.
  2. Add plenty of grit for drainage.
  3. Fill it with soil and make holes twice the size of the rootballs. 
  4. Pop your bulbs in the holes so that the pointed tip is facing upwards. 
  5. Gently firm the soil.
  6. Water generously.
