Back to the Book
Last night I got an e-mail from gardening expert Cheryl Merser, whose erudite book, A Starter Garden, is based on years of research as well as her experience of growing a garden from scratch in Sag Harbor Village. So she knows her local flowers. She gently corrected me: "Your neighbor's 'crocuses' are actually daffodils." I had a feeling those leaves were too long and skinny to be crocuses, but they were green when everything else was brown, so I just assumed... In addition, she wrote, "Did you know that saffron comes from crocuses?" I did not! Thank you for the info, and for not correcting my grammar! Now, where can I get some local saffron?
