If you sprinkle a few crocus corms around, they will multiply, seeding in some unexpected places and producing lovely heart-warming splashes of colour at the tail end of winter. Essential in every garden!
The expensive spice saffron is painstakingly harvested from Crocus sativus: a different variety to the ones sold here, which are mostly derived from the alpine Crocus vernus.
It takes about 200 Crocus sativus flowers to make one gram of saffron, and because it prefers to grow on a Himalayan mountainside, it's not the best investment for the average British kitchen garden anyway.
