Re: Northern Blooms

I'm in Ft. Wayne.  I planted saffron about 15 yrs ago and they bloomed
reliably in the fall for a few years, but eventually petered out.  However,
there were still2 blooming this past year.  I've planted them at the
extension office but they didn't come up.  I assumed rodents got them.

Temps have been strange, it's possible the snow crocus have sent up some
shoots.  But I haven't seen it here yet.  Usually Feb or March.
