I was wondering why crocus bulbs would be sold so early April 8th if you can not plant them until later. Just curious I am a very new beginner.

Actually, you can plant them now and they will just sit patiently in your garden until this fall. They need several weeks of cool temperatures to develop roots and then they will sprout and bloom. Some crocuses bloom in the fall and some bloom in the spring. Go ahead and plant them in your garden now.
