Why We Love It

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

Pollinator friendly.

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

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).

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

Planting Calendar

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

Flowers in March, April.

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 10cm/4 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.
