QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Are saffron crocus subject to damage by deer?

    Hi there! Deer are known to eat crocus, but rarely. They generally stay away from anything with strong scents and smells, but nothing is 100% safe!

  • Can saffron be grown indoors? I love in Colorado. The growing season is very limited here

    Hi there! You certainly can grow saffron indoors! They smell wonderful, so they would be lovely to enjoy spring scents in the winter months!
