Water CrocusTenere asciutto
We suggest not to exceed with the waterings: if the soil remains damp too long, it can favour the development of rotten in the bulbs. Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 1-2 glasses of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 1-2 weeks before watering it.

Cultivation Crocus
The Crocus has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. This plant in the spring assumes a white colouring; it is small in size and can reach 10 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. These plants are bulbeous.

Light CrocusSole pieno
The Crocus should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light. If you desire cleaning the ground from the bulbous plants after flowering, wait for the leaves to dry; later itís possible to take the bulbs out of the ground and place them somewhere dark, cool and dry, until the best season to plant them again.These plants aren't afraid of the cold weather and can be grwon in the garden throughout the whole year.

Pests Crocus
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Mold Crocus
Letís favour soft soils, with an elevated drainage.
