Crocus vernus - Dutch crocus mixed

DESCRIPTION: Compact plant with large goblet-shaped flowers in purple and bright yellow shades. Dutch crocus flower for almost 3 weeks, opening in the warm sunshine and closing during rain and the evening.
PLANTING: Bulbs thrive in free draining soil. Prepare clay soil using a clay-breaker and add well composted manure or mulch to help with drainage. Add grit or gravel to your planting holes if your soil is heavy, or plant up into containers. Cover soil with a good layer of mulch to help regulate soil temperature. Bulbs prefer an open sunny location or filtered sun in warmer climates.
USE IN: Ideal for creating a low maintenance meadow look in large areas of lawn. Plant as a flowering border below deciduous trees or group closely in pots for bright spring flowering colour.
CARE: Once planted, water the soil to set the bulb in place. An occasional light watering is all that's needed until the first flowers appear. Water and feed weekly or if the soil becomes dry, give a good deep water (bulbs are generally at least 5 cms below the surface). Once flowering is finished leave plants to die back, it's not the prettiest sight but don't be tempted to trim the yellowing foliage. The nutrients are being drawn back into the bulbs for next year. When the bulbs die back completely remove spent foliage and leave in place for next season.
CLIMATE: Frost to sub-tropical. Cold hard to -10C
