@stripeybag we planted 30 bulbs in 2017 and yes they have multiplied quite a bit. It's a crocus thst flowers in Octobre. Last year we did not have as good a drop as it rained a lot as they started flowering 😔

Fantastic @dcmorrs27. You must have lots of crocuses on your land. ☀️😊

Once you have harvested the saffron (which we do with tweezers!) it has to be baked at about 40 to 50°C then place in an airtight container in a dark dry place for 3 month before you are able to use it. So you can understand why it is soo expensive.

@Hari Ghotra it has got a real kind of 'musty' taste and a vibrant reddy/orange colour.

That’s incredible - is the saffron very potent @dcmorris27 ?
