My Crocus Bulbs Are Not Producing Flowers

Q: Two years ago some friends and I bought at a big box store fifty crocus
bulbs and planted them in a traffic calming island. We’ve never had crocus
flowers, but the spot produces two-foot-long leaves. Will we ever see crocus

A: It’s tough to predict what will happen. I predict they will eventually bloom.
Big box stores aren’t famous for caring for their bulb displays. The crocus
bulbs might have gotten too hot or too cold or too dry before planting. All
would cause delayed or non-existent blooming.
