The tubers can be planted in open ground or in a pot. Potted tubers aren't frost hardy, so bring the pot indoors or protect the plant with bubble wrap. Space the tubers out when planting in open ground. The distance between plants is three times the width of the tuber. Plant the tuber the depth of three times the tuber's height. Plant the tubers in full sun or partial shade. Water the tubers immediately after planting. Don't water it until the soil feels dry to the touch. The tubers come in organic packaging. Made of 100% natural materials and 100% recyclable!
All our flower bulbs have the Holland Selection A quality mark, and come with a 100% guarantee that they will grow and bloom. You can be certain that the flower bulbs will grow.

As soon as possible after receiving the large-flowered crocus corms, they shoudl be planted in the garden, pots or planters. Otherwise keep in a frost-free area. Potted bulbs are also not usually frost resistant. Plant the corms about 10 cm deep with a planting distance of about 2 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant these corms, roots down. Refill the hole and avoid walking over the planting area. A spectacular effect can be created by planting them in large groups planted in a wider whole. Crocuses grow best in moderately fertile, well-drained soil in a spot in full sun or partial shade.
Large-Flowered Crocus Mix in the lawn
Our colourful mix of large-flowered crocus will give a spectacular display in the lawn. Scatter the corms evenly over the lawn, the more you plant the more natural and effective the look. You can easily plant the through the grass, remove only a little soil and plant the corm. Refill with soil and push the grass sod back into place. You can also remove an area of grass and plant the bulbs at the correct depth into the soil, replace the grass firmly and water well. Do only mow the lawn in the spring after the leaves have turned yellow. These mixed large-flowered crocus are also suitable for planting in pots and patio planters.
The large-flowered crocus tubers are ideal for naturalising and can be left in the same spot for years without requiring any care and attention. After flowering, leave the foliage to die down naturally and cut back when it has turned yellow. The following spring you will be rewarded once again with an abundance of colourful flowers.
The large-flowered crocus is a popular harbinger of spring in the garden. Crocuses flower at the first hint of warmth in March already. It's then officially spring! Plant them in the ground and leave them undisturbed, and they will return in increasing abundance year after year. Our large-flowering crocus mix consists of white, yellow and purple and striped purple and white too. Crocuses are not bulbs but corms and you can clearly distinguish the bottom of the corm by the tufts of small roots.
