An Overview of Freesias

Posted on December 22, 2019 at 10:12 am

Freesias are exotic flowers that come in a variety of colours – red, yellow, purple and white mainly. They are exotic flowers that originate from South Africa, adding a splash of colour and a dash of interest to any environment. Just because they are from South Africa, it doesn’t mean they are difficult to grow. Here is a brief overview of planting and growing freesias successfully.

The main thing you need to consider is the quality of the soil. If it’s poor quality, use organic matter to improve it. If you use prepared corms, you might have more success, as they will have been prepared in certain conditions beforehand. The corms themselves look a little like onions and can be planted with the the pointy end looking up towards the soil. They will grow well in sunny spots, or those with some degree of shade, in either borders or containers.
