How to Plant Crocus Flower Bulbs

How to plant Crocus Corms: All Crocus including the Botanical Crocus species are actually known as corms, not built up of scales but it's a solid food storage with the new eyes for next season on top underneath the dried outer skin. Plant them at a depth of 6 - 8 cm (3 -4"). The broad bottom should be pressed into the fine loosened up soil of the planting site. Break up the topsoil into finer soil (remove clumps) and replace the soil gradually over the planted Crocus corms.

Water well. Fertilize in early spring with some organic fertilizer on top when the sprouts become visual. A good Mulch is essential for Crocus corms when you live in a cold frost prone area.

You can plant Crocus corms underneath trees or in a lawn, lift up the grass with a sharp spade (cut out blocks), loosen up the soil underneath and plant the corms. The grass will be a good protection for the winter. Mow the planted lawn area by mid may and they will return again and again.
