The Willows is a Garden Centre, Cafe and Deli in the Lincolnshire village of Glentham, near Market Rasen. Approx 13 miles from Caistor.

We visited the garden centre recently and were impressed by the condition of the plants and the general set up. All the staff are so helpful. The cafe is amazing, I love the furniture. The food was very nice and again the staff very helpful.

Well worth an afternoon out!

Hi, could you advise me before planting crocosmia. Is this plant or the corms toxic to humans or animals, thanks very much

Lyn Brookes 18.08.2014 19.49

Thanks very much for your speedy reply, I have not been able to find any information on toxicity. out of interest are they fatal if consumed?

Lauri Fox 18.08.2014 17.58

Hi Lyn, It is only the corms that if consumed are toxic to humans and animals.

Hi Mark,
I came Wednesday and got some lovely crocosmia from you still in pots you said not to plant them for about 8 weeks can I plant them in there pots, ??.

Lauri 27.04.2014 10.37

Hi Stephen,
Yes you can do that just make sure that the garden soil is well drained so they don't stand in water. Just add a handful of grit to the hole.

If planted out now they may sprout too early and die in the winter or become bird food.

There is one and that would be Mars. A bit darker than Lucifer and about 24 inches high.

This year I have collected the seeds and read that they should be planted in late winter, why not plant now as Nature does ? I live in Mid-Norfolk, UK. Thanks
