The breeding methods and precautions of Crocus sativus L

Crocus sativus L can be kept under astigmatism during cultivation. Usually every 3 ~ 5 days of water, every 10 ~ 15 days of nitrogen phosphate fertilizer. When the leaves turn yellow and wither in Spring of each year, saffron can be taken out from the soil to plant the ball. In autumn, they are replanted in the saprolite soil. Keep the temperature above 5℃ in winter.

3. Apply fertilizer rationally

In fact, proper fertilization is very important in Crocus sativus L cultivation methods and precautions. Every time saffron is propagated, the best amount of base fertilizer is applied to the soil. Nitrogen and phosphorus should also be applied every 10 to 15 days during the growth process. Fertilization can be avoided in winter, which helps Crocus sativus L grow.
