    These early-flowering bulbs will get the season off to a flying start when their diminutive flowers appear in late winter and early spring. Plant in generous drifts, or pot them up for the patio.

    In each collection you will receive the following:

  • 25 × Crocus tommasinianus
    The flowers on this small crocus can vary from pale silvery lilac to reddish purple, but whatever the colour, it is always a welcome sight in late winter. This is one of the easiest crocuses to naturalise as it will self-seed readily. A good companion for dwarf grasses - or lawns that have had a trim late in the autumn - so the flowers can be better seen. It is more tolerant of shade than many of its counterparts, so is a good choice for woodland areas. It will also be a magnet for whatever insects may be active so early in the year. Grows to 10cm tall.

  • 15 × Galanthus nivalis
    It's hard not to love these wonderful bulbs for adding colour to the garden when little else is awake. The nodding white flowers have a small green marking on the inside of each tepal, are honey scented, and appear in late winter. They look particularly good planted in large drifts in grass where they will naturalise quite happily. Alternatively plant them up in clumps in the front of mixed borders, or into pots so they can be admired close up. Plant the bulbs as soon as possible after delivery to prevent the bulbs drying out. Grows to 10cm tall.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs in naturalistic drifts 10cm (4in) deep in September or October. Where bulbs are planted in grass do not cut the grass until after the leaves have died back.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
