I recently sent for the "Free" Freesia bulbs from Gardeners World and have set them in a pot. I have read in one or two gardening books that they should be discarded after flowering because they are not hardy. Is this correct or will they be OK if I put the pot somewhere frost free for the winter ? Also, the compost I bought from Homebase seems to develop a whitish mould on the surface when I set seeds in it and yet this doesn't happen with other types of compost. Have other members found this to be the case as well ? Thanks a lot.
