Can I mow an area of lawn with crocuses in yet (they've pretty much finished flowering) or will it harm the plants? Does anyone know when/if it's ok to mow an area like this? Many thanks.

Hiya Vith, strictly speaking I think you are supposed not to cut them until foliage dies down. However, I do mow,over them and they flower every year and spread every year.

I would leave them be for a while, as from what i've learnt the foilage feeds the bulbs for next year, same as daffs etc.

Ok. Thank you very much guys. I think I'll go for a halfway house - maybe leave them 2 or 3 weeks, see what the foliage looks like and then mow them.
