Wish we could grow them, I love Crocus. In our previous garden I had thousands and a lot of the species too, expensive some of them. Here? Mouse fodder!. Plant them and then in Spring you find a tuft of leaves, but no corm underneath. Lost almost all the ones we have ever planted, except C thomasinianus which breeds rapidly and just about keeps up with the mice.
And yes I have tried planting them in baskets and all the other suggestions too, no difference, they get eaten.
