Chrispook's Garden

Crocus

I have Spring and Autumn flowering types. Many colours. They always cause great excitement when they begin to show. 2007 was mild and the first were out at the end of Jan {rare for this cold place}. 2008 looks like we will not see flowers till mid or late Feb.

Bought mixwd pack of 50 from Aldi, bargain price. Big and small bulbs. Planted in Philadelphus bed, side garden and in pots.
