Crocus Corms 2018

Purple 4 Polio logo

The Crocus planting season fits in well with the Rotary Purple4Polio campaign as Crocus Corms planted around World Polio Day on the 24th October are expected to provide a blaze of purple visible around Rotary Day on the 23rd February.

For 2018, the final deadline for Crocus Corm orders was the 31st July, so ordering is now closed.

There was a special deal this year that allowed smaller numbers to be ordered. A box of 5,000 Corms cost £100, while a bag of 1,000 cost £30.

Please see our Downloads section for order Forms and other related articles to help with the Purple4Polio campaign - including details of how to plant your Crocus Corms to display a Rotary symbol when they flower.

The status of known orders is shown in the table below. Please do get in contact if you have placed an order and it is not listed.
