These crocus photos were taken at St Johns College, Oxford. Raindrops add a bit of interest though it is tempting to wipe the mud off.
Best Planting depth
- Plant the corms about 4 inches deep, with the wider bottom of the bulb at the bottom.
- Plant Bulbs about 3 to 4 inches apart.
- For best effect plant in drifts and mass plantings of at least a dozen.
- When Planting crocus, the best time is September or early October.
This same bunch of crocus has just been taken from a higher angle.
Notice how it gives quite a different effect to take photo from ground level.
