Freesias grow well from Tasmania to Queensland. Freesias do not need heavy fertilising and seem to erform well in all soil types. One dislike is boggy poorly drained ground (a common complaint for most bulbs). Grow Freesias for their beautiful perfume, vibrant colour and excellent cut flowers. Overall one of the easiest growing bulbs.
Watering - only necessary if soil begins to dry due to insufficient rainfall.
Fertilising - prefers addition of slow release granules to soil prior to planting or fertilise top dressing 6 weeks after shoots appear.
Lifting and storage - digging only necessary when clumps become too thick. Dig up after foliage yellows.
Pests - spray for insects and bait snails when buds appear.
Tips - point of bulb faces upwards.
