For Patio Pots & Planters
Bakker's mixed Crocus (Crocus grandiflorus). When crocus burst into flower you know that winter is at an end. A few days of sunshine is all that is needed to encourage these flowers to appear, bringing colour to the garden, patio or decking. Crocus grandiflorus will be spectacular if planted in large groups. Maintenance free, they will automatically flower again next year.

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.
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.
