Crocus sativus bulbs of size 9/10
Crocus sativus bulbs size 9/10 each have a bulb diameter between 2.86 and 3.18 and a circumference between 9 and 10 centimeters.
The saffron bulbs of this size will give you at least 1 flower per bulb in the first year of planting, so that you can already enjoy a reasonable saffron yield in the autumn.
Healthy and strong bulbs
All Crocus sativus bulbs that we sell in our webshop are grown in the Netherlands on fertile sandy soils with a rich soil life and a high humus content. In this way the bulbs receive a high content of natural nutrients, which promotes the development of the bulbs during the growth cycle.
Quality saffron bulbs
The cultivation of our Crocus sativus bulbs is under the control of the Dutch flower bulb inspection service, the BKD. Our bulbs are qualified with class 1 on the basis of the implementation guideline for Species-Crocus.
The BKD is commissioned by the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) to inspect the quality of all flower bulb crops grown in the Netherlands.
