Look for this weeks Plant of the Week to start popping out in the coming weeks, signaling the arrival of spring. Crocus are one of the most popular types of bulbs because they are so easy to grow and because they come in a wide variety of colors. In our climate, they bloom in late/winter to early spring and are actually one of the first bulbs to bloom. Crocus are ideal for bordering landscape beds and even woodlands and should be planted in bunches. Plant crocus corms 2 to 4 inches deep, 3 to 5 inches apart, in a sunny, well-drained area. Plant winter- and spring-blooming crocuses in fall and fall-blooming crocuses in late summer.
