No need to dig them up, just plant somewhere where the soil gets a good sun baking in Spring and Summer. Sadly they just die out here for us as we are too cold in Spring.

You do need to be somewhere warm for the crocus to grow from one year to the next. The corms  need heat ripening after flowering otherwise they do not re-flower.

Possible Disease on my tree

One of the Scale insects. Can be very damaging as they are virus carrying sap suckers. They are not that easy to shift either. They are waterproof so you need to use a soap based insecticide sprayed on them. Might take a few applications too.
