The first crocus of the year is a joyful reminder that spring is on its way and this lovely gift will brighten up the house with new shoots and a pretty seasonal display. This pot comes with 5 purple crocus bulbs, which will flower sometime between February and March.
The growing kit is exclusive to Highgrove and is a delightful way to experience the joy of gardening, as well as bringing a splash of spring colour into your home.
Plant from August onwards. Empty two-thirds of the compost into the pot and moisten. Place the bulbs with the nose upright and cover with the remaining compost and moisten. Place in a dark, dry and airy position (7-9 degrees). Keep the compost moist and when the shoots are 4cm tall (approx 10-12 weeks) place in a light position (18-20 degrees). Once in flower, move to a cool, bright position to prolong life. Turn occasionally as the flowers will grow towards the light. After purchase store in a cool dry place.
Warning: Do not eat ornamental bulbs. Harmful if eaten. May cause skin allergy. Wash hands after handling. Container is not dishwasher proof. Protect all surfaces as scratching or staining may occur.
