Buy Crocus mixed colour collection large flowering crocus bulbs: A bright and cheerful carpet of colour

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: gritty, poor to moderately-fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March and April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 7/8

    Shades of purple, lilac-blue, striped, orange and white make up this lush mix of goblet-shaped flowers that appear in March and April above slender, strap-shaped leaves. These vigorous, large-flowered Dutch crocuses are perfect for naturalising in the lawn or allowing to meander through the front of a sunny, well-drained site. To achieve a naturalistic effect broadcast small handfuls of bulbs, planting them where they fall.

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

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

Would I buy the Crocus mixed colour collection again?

Only about 20 of the crocus's flowered which was quite disappointing. This could be because it was their first year and of course, I'm no gardener. This is why I have ticked 'Yes, I would recommend this to a friend'.

Really stunning plants, much larger and healthier than previous crocuses I have tried - maybe twice to three times the size of your standard crocus. Planted en-mass these look particularity stunning. Bees and butterflies flock to them. One downside is that no yellows have come up, as of yet, or maybe there were none in my pack?

I'm trying to lay down a carpet of colour in early spring so crocuses should do it. Pricewise these were value for money. I've not had any problem with these plants coming up and I didn't take any special care in planting except depth. On the negative side yellow does appear to be the dominant colour in the 'selection' and the first to raise their heads (just starting to show now).

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
