The source of Saffron, gathered from collecting the bright red stigmata from each flower, individually tiny (half a million per kilo!) justifying the huge cost of Saffron. They need deep planting in rich soil, in a sunny position and probably need lifting and dividing with regularity to encourage flowering. Their flower production is triggered by suddenly colder nights, our maritime climate sometimes does not provide that, which makes guaranteeing one’s own Saffron production a bit uncertain. 

Planting Instructions

They need deep planting 4" (10cm) in well drained rich soil in a sunny situation and 3" (8cm) apart.
