Growing Freesia, Dwarf White

Our Dwarf Freesias have the same size flowers as the cut flowers everyone knows and loves--and the same fragrance. They have been specially treated so they will be dwarf, compact-growing plants that require no staking.

LIGHT: Bright but indirect light is ideal; Freesias also grow well under fluorescent lights.

TEMPERATURE: Daytime 60-70°F, nighttime 40-55°F. The cooler the temperature, the longer the flowers will last.

WATERING: Keep the potting mix moist, but not soggy. Water when the surface of the potting mix is dry to the touch.

FERTILIZER: None is required.

GROOMING: Remove spent flowers as they fade to keep the plant looking fresh.

AFTER BLOOM: If you live in a mild-winter climate (one where the temperature never falls below 20°F), you can plant your Freesias outdoors after the danger of frost has passed. Gardeners in colder climates should discard plants after they bloom. They are unlikely to flower again indoors.
