As soon as the soil warms up the crocus provide a welcome sight. With their goblet shaped flowers and radiant colours they are perfect for front of borders, containers or naturalising into large carpets of colour.
If left undisturbed, crocus increase rapidly from self-sown seed as well as the natural multiplying of the bulbs. A member of the iris family, crocus bulbs produce beautiful small, delicate flowers. With varieties that flower in Autumn, Winter and Spring, they are very good at making a bright showcase in the garden.
