Do they HAVE to be dug up each year? I usualy leave my bulb plants in the ground. Is that a production issue or just how you deal with bulbs? 

When you say "sorted and graded" what exactly do you mean? 

The the spice the whole or just the pollen of the top of the thread?

Sorry, it's a new spice adventure for me. 
Soon I will venture into Curry hehehe. 
American garlic, salt and pepper be darned! I am on the verge of new worlds ;)

Thanks :)

Extremely hard  - it is sterile flower and the bulbs must be dug up and replanted each season.  Each flower has 3 stamen - it is these which we call saffron.  These must be harvested by hand, sorted and graded.  Most saffron production is around the Mediterranean with a growing business in India.
