More Details

The scent is gorgeous in this white freesia, and it looks stunning growing with, or in a bunch with the other colours.

I adore freesias – I love the scent, the arching stems, and that either growing or cut, each stem lasts nearly three weeks, looking and smelling delicious.

I've tried growing them several times and found that inside – in the greenhouse – they flowered best. However, with these new varieties, which have been bred especially and cold and heat treated, they flower brilliantly in the garden.

Our freesias are first class, top size, fresh healthy corms which have been stored through the winter at the right humidity (80%) and at 28°C. (Most garden centres cannot provide this which is why – in my experience – freesias often struggle). They need planting in March (in a greenhouse) or April (outside), once temperatures reach more than 5°C, and will flower 3-4 months from planting.

They can be planted 5-6 corms to a 1L pot, or straight out into the garden

If you'd like to give this as a gift, we will send it out in our lovely Sarah Raven hessian sack, tied with ribbon.

Advice
Why you should choose 'prepared' freesia corms

So-called “prepared corms” mimic what they would find in their native Cape in South Africa and ensures good growing and flowering.
