- Plant in a gritty, poor to moderately fertile soil. Ideal for growing in grass where the early blooms can be appreciated. Plant 10cm (4in) deep to deter mice from digging them up.
My top favourite crocus, with buds like a Rembrandt Tulip, the outer petals with a white base, feathered and veined with the deepest purple, the inner revealed when the flowers open, a lovely soft mauve.
Crocuses are often the first flowers in a garden and feel like the true cheerleaders of spring. Delicate, yet easy to grow, lovely closed up as a goblet and even lovelier, fully starily open. They will cheer up your February and March garden, at a generally grey time of year.
