Landscaping Tips: Because freesia flowers grow on the sides of the stems, the flowers are visible from any angle! Plant freesia in clumps or borders.
Planting: Find a sunny spot - freesias prefer areas where the sun shines for 8 to 10 hours per day. Plant 1 1/2 to 3 inches deep and at least 3 inches apart.
Consider fertilizing the plants when they are 6 inches tall. While the freesias are actively growing, water once per week, but don't flood the soil.
When planted in the fall, freesias will bloom in the spring, with flowers lasting for up to four weeks.
hen the plants have finished blooming, allow the foliage to die down naturally.
