Saffron

Saffron

The husband bought three bulbs and placed them on top of a plate on the balcony a few weeks ago. No dirt, no water. He said they would make saffron. Honestly, I didn’t believe these dry-looking bulbs would do anything. In a matter of two days, they suddenly sprouted and bloomed. We harvested the red stems.

Have you ever seen or tried growing saffron?
