Each year I try to add at least a few new spring blooming bulbs to my landscape. One of my favorites to plant is the crocus. In this post I share how I create a welcoming walkway in the lawn with crocus. You will see a video on how I do this and images below.

More About Planting Crocus In Autumn
The best to get the small crocus bulbs in the ground is before it freezes. I usually get my crocus in the ground in mid to late November. Sometimes we have snow that has melted making the lawn soft for this type of project. If you miss the deadline for planting outdoors just put the bulbs in a dry location that stays around 35-40*F. I store mine in the refrigerator for about 4 months to be planted in containers for early spring indoors.
One of the popular questions I get about planting these small bulbs in the lawn is how to keep the critters from digging them up. In the past, I have added cayenne or other hot pepper flakes to the area I plant. This has been key for keeping the squirrels and other digging critters out of my newly planted bulbs.
Second, you don’t have to worry about the crocus bulb being damaged from mowing or other basic lawn care. The blooming cycle of the crocus is done way before I have to mow the lawn.
