Q.Sustaining Blooming Crocus

Zone Aberdeen, MS 39730 | Anonymous added on November 16, 2021 | Answered

I purchased crocus bulbs in August. Just planted in Mid October because they were sprouting. I live in Mississippi. I put them in a small window box and covered them up and watered them. I left them outside on the ledge. Its been cold a few nights so I just left them there. This morning, I took a look at them and I saw some lilac colored blooms starting to emerge. I am growing these for the saffron. I want to be able to harvest it. Is it ok that they are blooming so soon? Will the saffron be any good?

Make sure you have saffron crocus bulbs, which bloom in fall. Regular crocus bulbs bloom in spring. Since yours is trying to grow, they should be the right bulbs.
