Crocus plants are so easy to grow – anyone can do it! The plants come in small bulbs that need to be planted in the fall. You can plant them a few inches apart and a few inches deep. Once they are covered back up, they are ready to go.
The crocus flowers are typically the first bulb to start blooming in the spring. I love seeing them pop up through the snow. After about 6 months of snow, it helps me to know that winter is nearly done.
The crocus flowers come in several beautiful, bright colors. In my garden, we have purple, white, and yellow flowers.
Sadly, the blooms only last a short time. By the time their petals are falling, other early bulbs, like tulips and daffodils, are starting to poke through the ground.
I have had really good luck with having my many of my crocus come back each year. To keep the garden colorful in early spring, I tend to plant 40 – 50 new bulbs each fall.
Be sure to check what growing zone you are in and if the crocus bulb will grow where you live.
