Hokus Crocus - Colorblends Crocus Blend

Email

  • Title:  Hokus Crocus - Colorblends Crocus Blend
  • Description:  Tuck crocus bulbs right under the grass this fall to set the stage for a delightful springtime spread of low-growing, early-blooming color. Colorblends' Hokus Crocus mix of purple, white and purple-white striped crocus varieties is especially pleasing and a very good value. Once planted in sunny sites where soil drains well, crocus can naturalize and multiply over time. "To plant into the lawn, a random effect looks best," says Tim Schipper of Colorblends, a Connecticut-based flower bulb wholesaler that sells direct to land care professionals and home gardeners across the country. Here's how to do it, says Schipper: Use a shovel to slice into the grass. Flip back a patch of turf to create a hole. Tuck in several bulbs, press the grass flap back down with your foot to leave the lawn surface smooth, move on to plant more. This speedy technique is highly effective, he says, and the resulting spring blooms are fun and enduring. To encourage re-bloom the following spring, allow crocus foliage to mature after bloom for six to eight weeks before mowing. After bloom, says Schipper, "Flower bulbs recharge to fuel the next spring's blooms - the process is called photosynthesis and it takes place in the leaves. Waiting to mow is simple: crocuses bloom well before lawns need mowing and their slim, blade-like leaves look like grass anyway."
