I planted autumn crocuses (no colchiums) about 10 years ago, and they have never bloomed. What can I do? The greenery comes up every spring.

If your autumn crocuses have never bloomed, it might be time to dig and replant them. You may have planted them too deeply, or in a garden spot that doesn't get quite enough sunshine. Try relocating them to a sunnier spot and planting them only twice as deep as the bulbs are wide. Hope this prompts some flowering!
