This is for 5 saffron seeds Growing 80 to 100cm (32 to 40in) tall, and flowering June to August. The flower is also used for dried arrangements and is considered to be an everlasting.
Carthamus tinctorius is a hardy annual plant that can handle a lot of heat in the garden. Hardy to 0°C (32°F) and easy to grow from seed, they can simply be sown directly where they are to grow in May or June. Alternatively, for the earliest flowering seed can be sown indoors in February to April and planted outdoors at 15cm (6in) spacings.
Sowing to flowering takes around 12 to 14 weeks and can be staggered by sowing successionally through the spring. It will give a host of vibrant hues throughout summer, whether in the garden or in the vase.
Sowing: Sow indoors late February to April for flowering July to August.
Seeds may be started early indoors 6 to 8 weeks before frost-free weather. Alternatively, sow seeds directly outdoors where they are to grow after all danger of frost is past and the soil has warmed.
The plants take approximately 14 weeks to mature and bloom. Blooming can be staggered by sowing successionally through the spring.
Sowing Indoors:
Sow indoors 6 to 8 weeks before last frost at temperatures of around 13 to 16°C (55 to 65°F).
Sow seed into seed trays or small pots and lightly cover with a thin layer of compost. Water carefully from the base of the tray. Germination usually takes around 14 to 21 days.
Transplant when there are at least two sets of true leaves and seedlings are large enough to handle. ***** out into small pots and grow on. Transplant to the garden after the last freezing nights usually around mid May. ‘Harden off’ for 3 to 4 days before planting out.
