    Colchicum 'The Giant'
    Mauve-pink flowers with a white centre, appear before the leaves in autumn creating a vibrant display in the garden. Suitable for naturalising, it can also be used for creating dollops of colour at the front of the border or in pots. This cultivar is well over 100 years old and is still a very popular choice, being prized for its large, colourful flowers.

    Colchicum 'Waterlily'
    Dramatic, double pink flowers reminiscent of waterlilies in September and October. followed by large leaves, retained until mid-summer. These autumn-flowering bulbs are perfect for naturalising in grass under a semi-mature specimen tree.

    Colchicum autumnale 'Album'
    Gorgeous, goblet-shaped, white flowers in September and October, followed by large leaves, retained until mid-summer. These autumn-flowering bulbs are perfect for naturalising in grass under a semi-mature specimen tree.

  • Garden care: Wear gloves to plant bulbs in naturalistic drifts 15cm (6in) deep in late July or August.

    Please note that as Colchicums have an incredibly short shelf-life, it is quite common to see them already sprouting when they are delivered. This will not have an adverse effect on the long-term health and vigour, and the ones that have not started to flower should be planted out as normal, taking care not to damage any emerging shoots. Those that have started to flower should be taken out of the bag and placed on a sunny windowsill where you can enjoy the show. As soon as the flowers have faded (and before the leaves develop), these too can be planted out.

Crocus bulbs

These are the most bee-pleasing of all, because the goblet of petals traps warm air, and warmth helps nectar flow. Smaller-flowered crocus flower first, usually by February, and among the stars are the purple and white Crocus 'Ladykiller' and the silver
