Crocus sativus (Saffron Crocus) 30 BULBS(Bulk Bag) AUTUMN FLOWERING

Plant type: Bulb

Availability : Order now for Sept/Oct delivery
The renowned autumn flowering Saffron Crocus with large 2” rich-lilac flowers with purple veins - good in pots or in dry grass. The red stigmas are used for flavouring and colouring food and are more expensive per gram than gold! It really needs a hot dry garden to get flowers – add sand to the soil.

As a rule of thumb, bulbs should be planted in a hole, the depth of which is around 3 times the height of the bulb. We usually dig our planting holes a little deeper than this and then fill the base with some fine grit which helps with drainage directly under the bulb. Never plant at perfectly measured distances apart as this can look artificial – for smaller bulbs we plant in clumps of five to nine in a staggered group so that they look more natural when they flower. For full tips on planting bulbs please click on the ‘cultivation guides’ tab on our home page.
