Description

Grow your own Saffron – a spice derived from the flower of Crocus sativus, commonly known as the Saffron Crocus.

The flowers are bold and beautiful, a soft lilac-purple colour. But the real show-stopper is the three fiery-red stigmas which carry the ‘scent of ambrosia’.

Threads of vivid, fiery-red crimson stigma and styles, are collected and dried for use mainly as a seasoning and colouring agent in food. Saffron has long been the world’s most costly spice by weight.

The Crocus sativus bulbs are grown in a small pot, ready to be planted in your garden.
