If you’ve ever bought saffron you’ll know just how expensive it is – so growing your own is a fantastic idea.

Saffron Crocus (Crocus Sativus) is a hardy plant that will keep coming up year after year.

How to harvest your saffron – when the flowers are in bloom you have to watch out for the tiny red ribbons that hang from the centre of the flower. Collect them using tweezers and dry before storing.
Store in an airtight container and it’ll last for up to two years.

35 Saffron Crocus bulbs at £9.95 or 70 bulbs for just £14.95.

This would make a fantastic gift for a cook who loves to garden, or a gardener who loves to cook!
