Crocuses naturalise well in grassy areas and February to March is usually the best time to see them. Often planted in great swathes in community parks and church yards, they provide a sea of yellows, purples, creams and mauve to herald the arrival of spring.
Where to see Crocuses
Some of Britains’ stately homes and gardens have wonderful displays of crocus and are well worth the visit.
Here are a few open days or places to see Crocuses that we are aware of.
If we have missed any then please get in touch with the details via our contact us form.
Please send us your pictures of your crocus walk, as we are sure there must be many more out there.
If you are a member of the NGS (National Garden Scheme) and open your garden for displays of crocus and spring flowers, then please let us know.
