Position full sun soil gritty, poor to moderately fertile, well drained soil rate of growth average flowering period october and november hardiness fully hardy bulb size 6 7 grow your own saffron the most expensive spice in the world, with this beautiful crocus. It produces large sterile, 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. To provide the conditions in which it needs to thrive, plant the bulbs in august or september in gritty, well drained soil and keep the area weed free. Harvest from the flowers daily, by removing the stigmas on a sunny morning soon after the flowers have opened and are fresh. Then dry them in a warm dry place, after they are dry store them in a closed airtight container ready for using in cooking. Garden care plant bulbs 10 15cm 4 6in deep from august in a hot, sunny spot. They can even be planted in grass but do not cut the lawn until after the leaves have died back. Saffron crocus can only be propagated by dividing the corms. After 3 to 4 years dig up the corms, divide and replant in fresh soil.
