Southern Hemisphere Saffron Crocus bulb sources

Wed, 21 Oct 2009 18:37:34 PDT
I know it is grown here in NZ, and there seems to be quite a bit about 
it on the Internet.  Perhaps this site might be of some use.


Weird request (but there is so much knowledge residing in this group,
I told my friend I'd try asking):

Does anyone out there know of commercial sources of Saffron Crocus
bulbs (Crocus sativus) that are in the Southern Hemisphere (Australia,
South Africa, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, etc.)? A friend of mine
wants to purchase somewhere between 1000 and 10,000 bulbs to plant at
a farm in the southern hemisphere and doesn't want to have to attempt
switching hemispheres. (Unless the wholesale price of Dutch bulbs is
so cheap that, even with losses, it would still be cheaper to do that
than buy them from a southern hemisphere source.)
