Who would have thought that one of the most expensive spices is so easy for anyone to grow? Saffron is a low-growing bulb with pretty, goblet-shaped purple flowers and grassy leaves. It is best known for producing the spice saffron and dye from the filaments that grow inside the flower and needs a cold winter with a few frosts to flower successfully. They're perfect for potting and adding colour to your courtyard or patio, in containers or mass planting in any garden or rockery.
