How to grow


Full sun or part shade


Sow direct where they are to grow in clusters or drifts or into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. Transplant when large enough to handle.


Choose a sunny or lightly shaded, well-drained position (freesias will tolerate poor soil). Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting and fertilise regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit Plant Food. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.


Germination may be improved by soaking seeds in tepid water for 24 hrs before sowing. Freesias will develop underground corms (bulbs) that last for years.
