Saffron

Our saffron has finished flowering for the year, it lasts about 2 weeks in the fall.

The minutina is coming to harvest now, and it will tolerate the cool winter in Arkansas.

We are preparing the old fashioned Victorian hotbeds, using horse manure buried under 1 to 11/2 feet of soil. The manure provides undersoil heating for about 2 months as it rots down, with no electricity required. The plants never come in contact with the manure.
