ABOUT FREESIA: The Freesia plants come under the family of Iridaceae with a wide range of species available under the same genus. They are herbaceous perennials with native origin in South Africa.
Freesia plants produce multi-coloured flowers with a very sweet aroma, making them a very popular choice for garden plants.
HOW TO GROW FREESIA BULBS: Freesia plants can be easily grown in pots. Bulbs can be sown maintaining a 2-4 inch spacing in a regular potting soil mixture at a depth of 2 inches. Freesias start blooming 10-12 weeks post-sowing the bulbs.
SOIL: The plant prefers moist soil conditions, especially during the entire span of the growing period. However, overwatering should be avoided.
WEATHER REQUIREMENTS: The plant needs direct exposure to the sunlight for 4-5 hours a day; hence the pot can be placed in a south-facing direction.
USES/BENEFITS: Due to their pleasant aromatic properties, freesias are commercially used in making shampoos, perfumes, and scented candles. They are used in bouquet designing and obviously for indoor gardening purposes.
