Tips for growing Freesia's please.
I spotted some Single Blend Freesia bulbs whilst wondering round town last week and since they are my mom's favourite flower thought I'd give them a go. Not much planting information on the pack and I'm finding conflicting information on Google searches. Has anyone here grown them from bulb in the garden before?
From what I've found I understand they need full sun and plenty of water (particularly during the growing season). One site suggests they aren't hardy in the UK and should be put in the ground in spring after the frosts have gone, but another site simply states to plant between now and December. Any ideas anyone?
I haven't yet decided whether to pot them up (we have a little pot I could use, or perhaps plant them with the hyacinths I'm putting in a pot) or whether to put them in the border. Suggestions welcome :D
