    Hi

    What's the best time to plant Crocus in Yorkshire?

    I'm getting mixed research and alot of it's vague where it will just say 'plant in Autumn'.

    Do Crocus need to be planted by a particular end date e.g before end October?

    Thanks

      Now is fine, next month is fine, even November, but after that, not the best, but would still work I bet.:smile:
