I planted crocus corms in pots 3 weeks ago, they have not sprouted & I am getting anxious.
Pots are @ 45 deg, I moistened the soil @ planting, but have been letting it dry since.
Am I too impatient?

I am not sure about those bulbs, maybe someone will come along that starts them in pots as you have done.

I'll bet you get tired of hearing those little birds keep calling your name over and over. It is a welcome sound in any garden.

Sorry about the two pictures. our Photo upload was acting up.

Crocus corms should have been planted in the fall, so that must mean that it takes a few months before they would be ready.

Found three little bitty yellow crocus shinning from under a plant. So cute. I need 100's of them.

Mine are in the ground, but as soon as the snow melted where they are I was out looking for traces. I think it's a bit early since it's only mid-February, but a girl can hope, right? I'm in Ohio so I'm a little farther south than you. Even though yours are indoors they'll probably bloom about the same time as outside so if I see mine pop thru yours will probably be close at hand.

Btw, I LOVE your name! That's too cute.

First sprout today!
So, for the record, 38 days @ 45 deg.
Now I feel springy, in spite of the weather outside.
