Saffron Crocus Bulbs - White

Crocus cartwrightianus albus

This beautiful autumn-blooming Saffron Crocus (Crocus sativus) is, as its name suggests, the flower from which we gather saffron, the quintessential seasoning for paella and other Mediterranean dishes and perfect for adding to basmati rice for an authentic Indian curry! The flowers produce vibrant red stigmas, which have been used for flavouring and colouring dishes since Roman times. Our growing instructions explain how easy it is to harvest the saffron, but it's not vital you do so - you may just wish to enjoy the lovely autumn flowers! They will thrive in a well drained border, or in a container on the patio. Plus they’re super-hardy (tolerant of summer heat and winter cold) and multiply rapidly from year to year. Also available, the stunning white Saffron Crocus (Crocus cartwrightianus albus). Bulb size: 5/6cm.

  • Grow your own saffron - the most expensive spice in the world! - The Saffron Crocus (Crocus sativus) is, as the name suggests, the plant from which we collect saffron, that most rare and expensive of spices. Saffron is an incredible way to perfume your dishes. It has a slightly sweet but earthy taste which can be used to flavour salty or sweet recipes, and 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 and unlike their more well-known spring-blooming cousins, once established they put on a display of beautiful and deliciously scented blooms during autumn! They will thrive in a well drained border, but can easily be grown in a container on the patio. Plus, they're super-hardy 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!
