Planting+

In spring, plant the double-flowered freesia bulbs approximately 2-4 cm deep and about 10 cm apart. Plant in light well-drained soil, essentially in a spot with complete sunshine. Cover the soil with a layer of compost. These pretty flowers can even grow in a flower pot, planted approximately 5-7 cm apart. Use fresh potting soil and make sure there is adequate drainage in the flower pot.

Double-flowered freesias planted in a pot

The fragrant freesia flowers are a great success on the patio or decking. Try planting a large amount of freesias in a flower pot, planter or window-box. Sunshine is essential for achieving the best flowering. Freesias are great when combined with low growing flowers such as the Portulaca Grandiflora.

Care+

As the first leaves begin to show start watering regularly. Keep them moist to stop the roots from drying out, however, this plant does not like very wet soil! Remove the faded flowers regularly to encourage a second flowering. For an extra rich flowering, we recommend adding plant food regularly when watering during the summer. The corms of double-flowered freesias are not very hardy and therefore cannot survive throughout the winter.

Extra+

Double-flowered freesias are part of the iris family and is originally from South Africa as the Dutch name, meaning. 'Lily of the Valley' already indicates. Its fragrant flowers are renown as great cut flowers. A group of double-flowered freesias should definitely not be missing in your garden. The flowers last quite a long time in a vase as well. Pick the flowers preferably early in the morning. Put the stems directly into a vase full of lukewarm water containing cut flower food. Due to their strong stems freesias are also suitable for using with oasis.
