  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: February and March

    Yellow-throated, white flowers with soft, silvery, lilac-blue outer petals in February and March. The flowers are framed by slender, strap-shaped, grey-green leaves. These spring-flowering bulbs are versatile and easy-to-grow. They are suitable for naturalising in grass or planting in sunny areas of a rock garden or shrub border. They need well-drained soils and prefer dry summers.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs in tight clusters to form naturalistic drifts 10cm deep where they can be left undisturbed for several years. Keep a look out for mice or squirrel damage. This can sometimes be avoided by laying a piece of chicken wire over the bulbs before you cover them with soil. If you are growing these in grass, avoid mowing it until the leaves have completely died back.

The Blue Pearl crocus were planted out in troughs and have done really well. They were really pretty and just kept flowering on and on.

Lovely delicate crocuses

This is a very sweet little darling crocus. I bought these to plant alongside my roses and ornamental grasses, just to fill the gaps, really. I have had quite a few so far and just wanted to top up the numbers. The colour is very unusual and gentle. They look beautiful planted in groups. very sweet indeed,little babies. They come year after year of course and its something different-colourwise.

These are a luminous blue colour, large flowers, stunning. I love all crocuses, but these have to be one of the most beautiful. They survived two lots of snow and a rotten winter overall, without turning a hair.

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
