The first crocus appearing shows that spring is on its way! This genus of 80 species of perennials are good grown in drifts in beds, pots or turf. The colours come in a range of yellow, purple, lilac and white.

For spring-flowering varieties, plant bulbs in autumn but remember to keep an eye on them… and over zealous squirrel, rabbit or rodent will quickly dig them up!

The most expensive spice in the world also comes from the crocus genus. Saffron has been a sought after ingredient for decades. It takes about 65,000 crocuses to yield just 1 pound of saffron.
