Crocus Planting Depth


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.

An uncollected leaf adds a touch of colour.
