Beautiful - used for crocus labyrinth - now in second year

Flowered beiatifully in first year. Planted under turf with drainage, compost and bulb starter to make labyrinth pattern Now beginning to flower for second year - yellows first- if like last year whites and purples will follow to give beautiful pattern for a few weeks Difficulty in lawn is slowing foliage to grow the die back naturally before needing to mow lawn ..... But if you don't mind a perfect excuse not to cut lawn......

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
