Dig holes 2 to 3 inches deep. If you are planting crocus bulbs in big numbers, dig shallow trenches. Leave 2 to 4 inches between bulbs. Add bulb fertilizer to the bottom of the hole and mix it into the soil. Place each crocus bulb in the hole with the pointed side up and the root side down. The bottom of the bulb should rest firmly on the bottom of the hole. Once in position, water your crocus bulbs thoroughly.
Crocus bulbs can be purchased and planted in the late summer through to late autumn for spring blooming. For autumn blooming crocuses, plant bulbs in late summer. New plants can also be obtained through division.
When planting crocus bulbs, make sure the bulbs are planted in full sun to light (dappled) shade.
If your crocus bulbs stop flowering so healthily after a couple years, you may need to dig them up and divide them to encourage full blooms. The best time to divide your crocus plants is just as the foliage has completely yellowed and died.
Healthy crocus bulbs don’t have many disease or pest problems. However, squirrels are partial to newly-planted crocuses and will sometimes dig them up and eat them. You can protect your crocus bulbs buy planting them under a wire mesh.
