We did not receive a picture. Try sending it again. This could be many things. In the meantime, you can read this collection of articles for more information on the care of saffron:

Q. Saffron plant

When I ordered saffron plant by internet – I thought I will get saffron bulb. Instead they sent me hundred or so tiny seeds. Do saffron have seeds as well.

Q. Saffron

Is it true that once saffron crop has been harvested, you rotate and cannot use that same plot for 4yrs.
Would it not be possible to re-mulch and fertilize leaving plot empty for the next 1 to 2 yrs then reuse.

There is some confusion here. Saffron bulbs multiply rapidly, so rapidly that they become crowded and less productive. For that reason, they should be dug up and thinned every 4-6 years. They can be replanted in the same location. I would add compost to the soil at that time.

Q. Gardening in Belize (Beachfront Property)

I have purchased the following seeds: Safflower; White Japanese Lilac; Purple Giant Allium Gogarten and Purple Climbing Rose. My soil is very salty, and the winds are constant at 10 MPH with gusts up to 30MPH frequently. I have a garden behind my house which blocks most of the wind, but the salt air is still heavy.
I have tried 24 different plants including Veggies and flowers and nothing can grow in my soil. I now use potting soil in containers, and can grow just about anything.

Can you offer any advice on growing the aforementioned seeds?
Thank you
Tom Shannon
