  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: February and March
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 5/+

    Delightful, deep-purple flowers in February and March and narrow, mid-green leaves. This early spring-flowering crocus is one of the best for naturalising in grass. Larger and more robust than other 'Tommy' varieties, stands up well to winter weather, dying back gracefully after it has flowered.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs in naturalistic drifts 10cm (4in) deep in September or October. Where bulbs are planted in grass do not cut the lawn until after the leaves have died back.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

    Comments about Crocus 'Ruby Giant':

    These have flowered since the end of January and it is now the end of March and they are still going. They are bright and cheerful and the bees have loved them.

      Plant spring bulbs

      Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
