Every garden should have crocuses and lots of them.
Not only because they are one of the first flowers of spring or that they are really pretty or that they hardly take up any space in a small garden BUT because this little bee is desperately looking for something to feed on in early spring time – and your crocuses will be a lifeline.
So if that’s not a good enough reason, we don’t know what is!
We’ve used Crocus Tommasinus Albus in our design, but to be honest it doesn’t really matter which ones you choose, they’re all lovely. However the birds do seem to prefer eating the yellow ones more!
