Description

One of the first crocus to flower in the early spring, Crocus tommasinianus and also known as the woodland crocus or Tommasini’s crocus are often referred to as ‘tommies because they were named after the botanist Muzio G. Spirito de Tommasini, who was Mayor of the city of Trieste, a city in the northern part of Italy.

Cultivation Instructions:

Cultivate soils to a depth of 10-15cms and plant bulbs as per the growing information below. Specie and chrysanthus crocus naturalise really well and can be grown in most soils that are free draining. Happy planted in full sun or semi shade, borders, rockeries, under trees and shrubs and superb in containers.  Ideally grown in soils that are humus rich and free draining. In heavier soils such as clay, cultivate the top layer of soil and add grit and well rotted humus which will help to provide the drainage that they need. They naturalise really well and will spread out to cover a wide area. A lovely group of bulbs that are ideal to grow in semi to full shade, in the borders/garden or in containers. They bring early colour to the garden, flowering in January/February and of course they work well with many plants and bulbs.

Care tips:

Specie crocus will benefit from using bulb starter when planting in the first year.

Remember to feed well during the leaf and flowering stage to ensure they grow and bulk up well for subsequent years growth.

They work really well when planted with dwarf daffodils, other specie crocus and Anemone Blandas.
