Buy Indoor heart square planter Indoor crocus gift set: Add rustic charm and spring colour to your windowsill

  • Position: bright light
  • Soil: compost supplied
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: November to March (depending on when planted)
  • Hardiness: tender
  • Dimensions: 15cm x 15cm x 12cm

    Plant this up and pop it on your windowsill for a pretty display of white crocus in late winter or early spring. The wirework basket has oodles of rustic charm, and could be re-used again for additional seasonal displays, while the bulbs can be planted outside in the garden after they have started to fade, where they will go on to flower year after year.

    This kit contains one decorative wirework outer basket, one zinc planter, five Crocus 'Jeanne D'arc' bulbs, potting compost, and clear instructions on how to put them all together to create a beautiful display for your home.

    Indoor growing intructions: Plant from August onwards, by emptying two thirds of the compost into the planter. Then place the bulbs on top (pointy side uppermost) and cover them with the remaining compost, firming it down gently. Water sparingly so the compost is just moist, but be careful not to overwater. Place the planter in a bright position and try to maintain temperatures around 18-20C. Once in flower, move the planter to a cool, bright room to help prolong the display. Turn the basket occasionally as the flowers will grow towards the light, and keep the compost moist but not waterlogged at all times. When the flowers have finished blooming, the bulbs can be planted outside in the garden.
