Crocuses are not of much value in the garden. They are very early, but that is their chief claim to favour. When they first appear our eyes have been flower-starved for so long that we welcome them with much pleasure and talk about their advent at the breakfast table. Crocuses should be placed in the lawn, or on the edge of the meadow, and will have to be renewed about every two or three years. One sometimes sees Crocuses blooming through a late snow, and when they are discovered in such a plight the effect is quite startling.
