A family which may flower continuously from September, when the autumn-flowering species start to bloom, until the large-flowered Dutch Crocus finishes in March. The autumn-flowering species should be planted in August and September, and the spring-flowering varieties from September to November - the earlier the planting the better the result. Corms should be planted about 8cm (3”) deep in any good fertile garden soil. The winter and spring-flowering species are well suited to the rock garden or the front of borders, and the later Dutch varieties for groups, edging borders or naturalising. For the best results, plant 8-10cm (3-4”) deep, 5cm (2”) apart, and leave undisturbed. Croci are suitable for a pot or bowl culture, with the exception of large-flowered Yellow Crocus, and may also be grown in pebbles and water. It is important to remember that they must not be forced too hard, as too much heat or dryness in the atmosphere will lead to excess of leaf and no flower.
For forcing - Pot as above approximately 1’’ below the soil. These bulbs require about 12 weeks in cold storage.
