What is the best climate to grow saffron? – How To Grow Saffron Indoors

The truth is that the climate has changed, and this year is going to be particularly wet and difficult for most of northern India where it is growing well in the Himalayan foothills. It is, though, one of the three best climates to plant saffron.


The other factors that affect the climate to grow saffron are, to be discussed in next week’s post, humidity (that can increase during the hotter parts of the year), temperatures, and rainfall.

Here are three factors that make a difference on the climate to grow saffron:

Habitation – the more you live in an area of high rainfall the more often you can grow saffron. Higher humidities and higher temperatures make the growing conditions more favorable for most varieties; more humidity is not always necessary for growth in India.

Higher humidities and higher temperatures make the growing conditions more favorable for most varieties; more humidity is not always necessary for growth in India. Humidity – humidity can increase in a given location and when it rises above what may be considered comfortable for some people, it can dry out the plant and the seeds and the leaves.

– humidity can increase in a given location and when it rises above what may be considered comfortable for some people, it can dry out the plant and the seeds and the leaves. Temps – temps, or dewpoints, can affect the growth and yield of saffron plants in different areas. Higher temps help the plant develop a lot more quickly and grow more leaves and roots. Higher temperatures cause higher temperatures in the plant as well. So in the northern part of India you can grow saffron plants in higher temps than you can grow it in the Southern part of India. In some areas you may have to wait a couple of months for conditions to get favourable.

In addition to these factors we have to watch our intake of salt – in the heat of the summer heat-salt is absorbed to a greater extent than it is in the coldest parts of the year. A lot of salt is also absorbed from the air, especially in urban areas.

So, what climate should I plant saffron in? Let’s take a closer look at each of these factors.
