Plant a sea of colour with Crocus bulbs!

Crocus are one of the most popular spring flowering bulbs to plant in your garden. The most common colours are purple, yellow, and white but they also come in several bi-colour or stripped varieties. These little beauties grow to be about 4 to 6 inches tall and produce an abundance of flowers in early spring. If you leave Crocus bulbs in the ground they can grow and bloom again the next year. This is called naturalizing. You can plant them in masses in your garden, or even plant them in your lawn. Just wait until after they have stored enough energy for next year before you mow them down.

Planting Bulbs is as easy as “Dig, Drop, Done”!

If you have never tried growing spring flowering bulbs in the past because you thought they were to much work you might be surprised to find out just how easy they are to grow. All you have to do is Dig a small hole, Drop the bulb into the hole, fill the hole in with soil and a little fertilizer, and you’re Done! Your bulbs grow roots during the winter and will sprout out of the ground next spring. Different bulbs bloom at different times and if you plant a variety of bulbs you can have colourful blooms from February right through June. Some of the most popular varieties include Snowdrops, Crocus, Daffodils, and Tulips. But you can also choose from Alliums, Anemone, Chionodoxa, Hyacinths, Iris, Muscari, and Scilla.

The best time to plant the spring flowering bulbs is during September and October when the weather is normally better. You can also plant during November and December but it might be a bit cold and wet outside. You can plant your bulbs here on the west coast as late as January and still have them flower the following spring although it is not recommended as they might not develop enough roots to bloom properly.
