Crocus - Crocus

The crispy juicy flower bulbs of crocuses are among the favorite foods of vultures. While the large-scale control of these pests in the garden proves to be quite complex, the targeted protection in the context of planting is comparatively uncomplicated. Special vault baskets are available in the specialized trade. With a little manual skill, you construct the protective basket made of narrow rectangular wire itself. A lid is superfluous because voles do not come to the surface. Before the crocus tubers the basket comes into the earth. How to do it right:
  • Dig a 15-20 centimeter deep plant hole
  • Insert the vole basket
  • Cover the floor with a 2-3 cm high sand layer
  • Then put the crocus onions in a small tuff
The excavation is now filled, pressed and watered. Ideally, mark the planting location so that it is not accidentally dug up in the autumn.
