We planted ours by drilling the lawn!
We just threw them in drifts for the natural look and then using a cordless drill and a 25mm wood auger bit drilled a hole where they landed. As Mike said double their depth to size of bulb.
The holes were top dressed with a mixture of compost and sharp sand which was brushed in. A scattering of grass seed afterwards to cover.
It's not as time consuming as it sounds and the crocuses have come up year after year without fail.
We did get some funny looks from the neighbours though when doing the drilling!
