I don't have a predator problem. My small number of saffron corms are in

flower in their first Autumn.

I understand that the corm is replaced each year, so lack of success the 
second Autumn is my fault.

You can see my photo (#4 of row #2) of the relationship of new and old 
crocus corms on this wiki page:…

There is another wiki page with a photo (#1) comparing the leaves of 
various species:…

For me saffron leaves were a lot longer than for other species.
