Q.How often should you water a crocus flower?

Zone 6 | Merri added on March 16, 2012 | Answered

We recently moved into a new house and the previous owners had a vegetable garden along with several flowers planted. One of those flowers is a crocus. How do you care for them once they are growing? How often should they be watered? I don’t know much about gardening, so this is all new to me and I don’t want to kill off all their hard work! Thanks for your help!

Crocus are easy care plants and established plants pretty much take care of themselves. Crocus prefer their soil damper in the spring and fall, but somewhat dry during the summer. Rainfall is normally enough for these little jewels but you may need to give them a bit whenever conditions in spring or fall become drought like.
