How to take care of Crocus Botanical Mix
Crocus Botanique Mixte likes overcrowding at the front of your border, in rockeries. Outdoors choose a location with as much sun as possible. Prepare your site well, loosen it up and put some organic fertiliser pellets into the soil. Plant Crocus Botanique Mixte in groups together. Give water after planting. If the weather is particularly dry, give water when the shoots start to appear. There is no need to remove the dead flower heads, let Crocus Botanique Mixte die back naturally as this feeds the bulbs for next year. In two years they will produce a supreme clump of attractive plants. For Indoor planting: Plant Crocus Botanique Mixte them upon arrival. Water thoroughly and let sit for a few hours before placing it in a dark room for about 10 -weeks. Crocus Botanique Mixte dislike being near fruit as it can result in no flowers. When the sprouts are well established you can move them to a sunny spot at room temperature and force them into flower. Keep Crocus Botanique Mixte moist all the times.
