Saffron Crocus Pack of 35 Bulbs
Saffron Crocus Pack of 35 Bulbs £9.95
Grow your own saffron – the most expensive spice in the world! – The Saffron Crocus is, as the name suggests, the plant from which we collect saffron, that most rare and expensive of spices, on a par in the culinary world with the likes of caviar or truffles. Saffron is an incredible way to perfume your dishes, one gram is enough to spice more than ten plates. It has a slightly sweet but earthy taste which can be used to flavour salty or sweet recipes. It is perfect for adding to basmati rice for that authentic Indian curry!Beautifully scented autumn blooms – You may be surprised to learn that it’s actually very easy to grow – you certainly don’t need to have green fingers! Just plant the bulbs in a sunny spot in your garden before the end of August and unlike their more well-known spring-blooming cousins, they’ll be putting on a display of beautiful and deliciously scented blooms in just 4-6 weeks! You don’t need a lot of space to grow them; they will thrive in a well drained border, but can easily be grown in a container on the patio. Plus originating from the foot of mountain ranges, they’re super-hardy (tolerant of summer heat and winter cold) and they’ll multiply rapidly from year to year.Harvest your own “red gold” – Give them a try and you too can look forward to the magical experience of picking your very own “red gold”. Look out for them each morning, dangling from the throats of the flowers: bright, alluring and full of promise. Once cut and dried, they can be stored in an airtight jar for several years. Order by end of June for delivery in August, and you’ll be picking your first crop in October! Full growing instructions included. August
