Posted on 2023-11-042023-11-04 by the_dr_blue11/04/2023 saffron season The original saffron patch after being divided this spring has three plants big enough to flower! A bumblebee was visiting one! I didn’t divide this patch very well oops. In the front yard, I had planted three patches the last two seasons. So far only one is up and no visible flowers. someone else here near Norman had several at this stage. I think the smaller bulbs don’t flower the first season and need to grow more. Judy reports one flower from her bulbs planted in the spring after the division! Hers are in a pot.
