The organic bulbs that we sell in our shop are grown completely organically, taking the environment and animal welfare into account as much as possible. For this organic cultivation we use organically certified sandy soils with a rich soil life and a high humus content. This ensures that you receive strong organic bulbs that have a high content of natural nutrients, which benefits the flowering and health of the saffron bulbs.
