Quick tip-grow your own saffron

Saffron crocus

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

You can grow your own saffron!  Saffron are the stamens from a type of fall blooming crocus.  Simply plant in the fall and harvest the stamens when they bloom for your own saffron spice.  

You can get high priced seasoning and a beautiful addition to the spring garden all in the same plant.

I saw them for sale at Michigan Bulb Company, but you can get them from other mail order companies as well.
