When to Plant Freesia Bulbs?

Answer

Freesia flowers are “zygomorphic” which just means that they grow along one side of the stem, in a single plane. Plant freesia bulbs indoors from September to November. Plant 5 bulbs per 12cm(5in) pot, 2cm(1in) deep and 2cm(1in) apart. Keep soil moist during the growing period and insert strong twigs among them to keep the stems upright.
