Bjs gave me these a couple of months ago :)
Thanks BJ.

Do you have these in the lawn, Louise?

They're not Spritz, they're in the south facing border.
I thought it was too early until Terra just said hers were out aswell.

Mine are in a border, semi-shade. Others which I planted in a drier area under a tree have not yet flowered. Is this the first time you've grown these, Louise? I've not had autumn crocus in my gardens before. One of my GoY questions is about these.

This is the first time Terra, i've not had autumn flowering ones before either.
I read up on them and planted these in a sunny border and i'm really pleased with them :)
