Purchases made through our webshop will be shipped by DPD.

Saffron bulbs, the Crocus Sativus can be ordered in our webshop throughout the year but will be available for delivery from late July to late September. Orders will be processed in order of receipt and will be shipped as soon as possible after 26 July 2021. Orders placed during the months of August and September will be processed and shipped within 2 business days.
Because the UK is no longer part of the European Union after Brexit and the free movement of goods and people is no longer be possible, a new phytosanitary requirement applies to the Crocus sativus bulbs that are sent to the UK.
This new requirement is that a phytosanitary certificate must be added to every shipment we send to the UK. This phytosanitary certificate, including the export inspection that the Flower Bulb Inspection Service carries out before the bulbs leave the Netherlands, costs 175 euros regardless of the size of the shipment.
To prevent our retail customers in the UK paying high costs for only a small order, we work with a partner who is already based in the UK. We send all small orders together to our partner in the UK who will successively send the different packages of Crocus sativus bulbs to the different customers.
Because we send 1 large batch of Crocus sativus bulbs to the UK, only 1 phytosanitary certificate is needed, which saves considerably in the costs per order.
However, you should keep in mind that we will ship this batch of Crocus sativus bulbs in the second week of August and that you can expect your order in the third week of August, well before the recommended planting time of the end of August.
To avoid disappointment, we therefore recommend that you order your Crocus sativus saffron bulbs in time.
