Hi everyone, I got couple hundred free winter crocus bulbs with a plant order I fancied planting them in the lawn is it to late in the season to be digging up the lawn to plant these? Thanks Sam

    Do it as soon as poss. if the soil is frozen, plant in pots of compost and plant the whole potful in the spring. protect from squirrels and other rodents that think crocus are a nice canape.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Almost anything's better than just leaving them to dry out. Trying to get them in your lawn might not be feasible as you'll be compacting the (probably wet) ground getting them in. Pots are the best solution as fidget says. You can sort them out and get them in your lawn next year when conditions are more suitable  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
