I live in Brisbane and I bought three Pickwick Dutch Crocus bulbs from bunnings in late Autumn. I put them in the fridge for 4 weeks and then planted them. They are now only three centimetres tall and I think there's something wrong with them. My grandma said that when she grew crocus in the UK, they only took three weeks to grow flower buds. There's no sign of flowers yet. Is there something wrong with them?

Answer: Hi there Connor,
depending on where you are will depend on how fast these bulbs will grow, they normally will flower in the spring so while your waiting make sure the bulbs are not to wet so they don’t rot and as long as they are still producing green leaves they should flower in spring.
