Mice and voles love to snack on saffron corms
, and rabbits eagerly nibble the leaves to the ground.
arrive, don't wait long to plant because they can dry up.
Likewise, emergence was positively correlated with corm
weight (r = 0.
The analysis of variance for diameter and mass of gladiolus corms
was significant for the interaction between wood ash doses and soil water content and fitted to a polynomial regression model (Figures 5A and B).
There are also significant differences between local accession on total yield, plant weight, harvesting index, corm
weight, number of cormlet, antioxidant capacity, flavonoids and P content (Table 6).
Place in the sun to cure (dry), then shake off any clinging soil, break off the old corm
, and store in paper bag (never plastic) in a frost-free location over winter.
The saffron is a sterile geophyte that produces annual renewal corms
and is propagated only by them .
obtained from a farmer from Safranbolu in Karabuk province of Turkey where is the one of the most important saffron planting area commercially.
should be cleaned before storing, by removing the old corm
from the base and saving the small cormlets to grow on.
If you want to try growing Crocosmia in cold climates (where temperatures fall below 10[degrees] and the ground freezes), you'll need to dig up corms
every fall; store in a frost-free place for winter, and replant in spring.
For outside displays, freesia corms
should be planted in April in light, well drained soil in full sun.
These new corms
can also handle increased differential loading, allowing the use of zoned type rolls for caliper profile control.
