Grow your own Saffron – a spice derived from the flower Crocus sativus, commonly known as Saffron Crocus.
The flowers are bold and beautiful, a soft lilac-purple colour, but the real show-stopper is the fiery-red stigmas which carry the “scent of ambrosia”.
Threads of 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 expensive spice by weight.
The Crocus sativus bulbs are grown in a small pot ready to be planted in your garden.
