Description

Blanket your borders, grassy areas and pots with beautiful blooms, with the help of easy-going Crocus 'Mixed Colours'. Not only do these sweet little goblet-shaped blooms bring a bucket-load of early-spring cheer when they pop up every year with great enthusiasm, but they provide an essential source of early nectar for bees too. Sometimes, bees even use them to sleep in at night as the flowers close around them like a sleeping bag. Colourful, cheerful and reliableyou can't go wrong with these large-flowering crocuses!

Crocus is a plant you can leave to its own deviceswhen it comes to low maintenance spring colour, it couldn't be simpler. Once you have planted the bulbs in autumn, they will grow and flower the following spring. Each year, crocus bulbs multiply, so you can enjoy more and more of them appearing each year. Mixed Crocus vernus are perfect for pots, borders and growing through grass. 

These short beauties will be sweeping different shades and hues across your spring garden as it wipes the winter's sleep from its eyes. Selecting mixed colours of crocus will provide you with a ready-chosen palette to turn you from a gardener into an artist—and once you’ve set the original design, a similar landscape will re-emerge year after year. If you want to play with textures in your living painting, try planting your mixed crocus bulbs in the lawn. The effect is stunning. Just remember not to mow the lawn till six weeks after the crocus have stopped flowering or you may cut off the cormlets that are forming, and then you won’t get a repeat display next year.
