Crocus Sativus are planted in August, until the first week of September. In a well-drained soil with maximum sunlight. If necessary, the drainage of the soil should be corrected by adding organic matter and sand to lighten the texture.
Weeding is important to ensure a good harvest. Quebec winters generally provide the water necessary for bulbs to multiply. In the spring, watering is necessary if the soil is too dry. In summer, there is no need to water. In autumn, it is necessary to water towards the middle of September, if the rains are absent to activate the bloom. The flowers appear 6 to 8 weeks after planting. In winter, it is not necessary to cover, the snow serves as insulation.
