Does anyone know of a good source for saffron crocus bulbs? I hear they are fall bulbs so I better get mine now. I need to do some more reading on them but I would like to grow them for their spice. saffron is considered the most expensive herb in the world and all it is is the stamen cut on the morning of the first bloom on this crocus. Saffron is used in a lot of Indian cooking. I have not tasted it, at least not that I am aware of but I am about to start my dried herb collection from my own herb garden for the first time this year and would like to add this spice to it.
