Organic Crocus Sativus - Saffron Crocus

Crocus Sativus produces large rich lilac flowers with distinctive purple veins in October and November. An autumn-flowering crocus, it is named after its three long, deep-red stigmas, which are cultivated commercially for colouring and flavouring food.

 Plant the bulbs in August or September in gritty, well-drained soil and keep the area weed free. Prefers full sun.  Dislikes wet, heavy soils. Harvest the flowers daily, remove the stigmas and dry.

25 bulbs per pack.
