January 19, 2013 by Sandra Jonas FROM ONE GARDENER TO ANOTHER “From one gardener to another,” read the note. I have tried in vain to find the Saffron Crocus ( Crocus sativus). Today I arrived home to find a box full complete with instructions… from a gracious & generous gardener. I was told, when I first arrived in Georgia, that one never says ‘thank you’ for a plant; instead one says “I appreciate it.” I truly appreciate it!! These crocus bloom in the autumn and the stamens are the exquisite spice Saffron.
