Crocus in the Lawn

Winter Interest in the Lawn

Winter is a tough time for the gardener to motivate themselves to get outside, as it can be cold and miserable and unappealing, but with thoughtful planting in the garden there should be no season without colour and scent to entice you out. Simply plant crocus bulbs in your lawn between September to November for dramatic effect.
