Scattered some around my new garden when we moved last Sept. Some have come through, others are struggling.
Mine look no where near as nice as these though TT.

Do Crocus need a year or two to get established?

28 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments...

I've found that some bulbs do benefit from having a few years to become established...

Crocus bulbs do seem to be vulnerable at times ...

... in some gardens, the bulbs are susceptible to rodent damage ... and in other gardens, the crocus petals are attacked by small birds, such as sparrows ...

... so, being able to have a lovely display of crocus flowers is a rather unpredictable.. ;o)

I so love to see crocuses in the sunshine, they look as if they are soaking it all up! I would do the same if only it would make an appearance down here!!

28 Feb, 2013

Thanks Sandra and Floral ...
The crocus have flowered surprisingly well this springtime. They were planted several years ago. :o)

28 Feb, 2013

 

What a happy cheerful picture Tera. My crocus are just pushing through too :))

28 Feb, 2013

 

Nice & bright TT. I have crocuses, but like Paul's they never open up, no sun.It's disappointing when they eventually die & you've never seen their centres. Still hoping.

Thanks Maggie and Feverfew ..
I hope your crocus flowers open nicely soon :o)

Hi Scotsgran ..

1 Mar, 2013

 

Good to see them basking in the sun ...

1 Mar, 2013

 

awww Terra.... how beautifull!!!!! :)

3 Mar, 2013

 

Terra, that is such a lovely pic. Can I ask you though...how do you manage to get your winter jasmine that high?

5 Mar, 2013

 

Aren't Crocuses wonderful? :-)) They are the most cheerful & colourful bulbs of the springtime every year! I really look forward to mine every year at the end of February/beginning of March. They are out on the balcony with lots of different colours cheering us up after several weeks of cold, cloudy weather.

As I went down to the allotment yesterday afternoon I passed a garden whose owner has left his Crocuses "in situ" for many years & every year the display just looks better! This year is no exception & there are lots of Snowdrops as well.

Hello Balcony ..
Yes. Crocus flowers are doing well this year.
My bulbs have multiplied a lot.

Hi Karen ...
My winter jasmine tries to go even higher ...
It seems to enjoy growing there.

6 Mar, 2013

 

Well, it's lovely. I hope mine keeps going upwards!

6 Mar, 2013

 

Now there's an inspirational pic, Terra.
I'm already thinking of next spring.
Am I tempting fate? :-X

This is such a pretty picture.

We are still having winter here in Central Scotland. We were told we were getting snow this weekend then it was changed to rain but they were right first time. We had a flurry of snow which did not lie yesterday but we woke up to a winter wonderland this am. The council have been caught out because the roads have not been gritted. I hope it does not last.

Hi Mouldy ..
It's good to be optimistic .. and good to think ahead !

Thanks Homebird :o)

Hi Scotsgran ...
Let's hope the weather perks up again soon. !

10 Mar, 2013

 

It must have heard you TT. The sun is shining brightly but its probably helped by reflecting off the snow.

10 Mar, 2013

 

Glad you have some sunshine :o)))
