Re: How to Grow Saffron Crocus

I wish you better luck than I had. I planted 20 bulbs 4 years ago and the first year was great. I actually got flowers that first fall and then in spring the voles got all but one. That one only gave me foliage for the next two years, but today I discovered that the one remaining bulb had divided and I had three flowers waiting to have their stigmas plucked. I now have 9 threads drying in my cupboard. I'm hopefully that if the vole hasn't eaten that one yet it will survive.
