The effect of these crocus in the winter garden is remarkable. Their smooth, goblet-shaped heads look so delicate yet they are the toughest of little flowers. They naturalize and spread into clumps so they can be seen from quite a distance against a dark grassy background. Even in patchy snow, they look special, dabbing the whole winter scene with colour. You can buy ten, twenty, thirty or fifty with this order. To plant them just dig a hole about 10 cm deep, put in the bulbs, cover with soil and nature will do the rest.
