Freesia Care

Freesias are corms Ė the corm you plant will give up all its goodness to grow and flower and a completely new corm will form on top of the old one, together with a few small cormlets at its base.

PLANTING: Corms should be planted from February to May, 8 cm deep and in a sunny, free draining position.

Early planting will allow the corms to establish, but will not result in particularly early flowering as soil temperatures must fall below 17įC before the corms will set flowers, which does not happen until later in autumn.

Freesias are well suited to naturalising, establishing good clumps within a season or two. They require no special attention over time other than watering in dry conditions and some fertiliser once a year.

AFTER PLANTING: Thereís little more to do after planting and watering in. In early spring as the shoots emerge, fertilise with a balanced N:P:K 15:10:10 fertiliser to give the plants a boost.

AFTER FLOWERING: To ensure good flowering next year, make sure you keep looking after the bulbs after flowering. Now is the time to fertilise them again to boost growth and help them re-gain strength. Keep watering so the leaves remain green as long as possible. The longer they remain green, the more growth the bulb will make.

If you want to lift the corms to move them or split up large clumps, this should be done in December/January when the corms are dormant. After harvest, dry them off and store them in a warm airy place until planting again in autumn.
