Double Freesias Premium Selection

Please Note: Due to pre existing Quarantine laws we cannot send any bulbs to Western Australia and Tasmania. You may need to find bulb suppliers in your areas. Sorry we cant help you. 

Arouse your senses with these colourful flowers. Fantasia Freesias are fully double blooms in pretty hues. The flowers are on show for weeks, and each stem produces many florets.

From planting, Freesias average 100-120 days to flower.

Freesias are easy to grow bulbs, that are vigorous and hardy by nature. They grow best in full sun to light shade, in a well drained soil. If they are not getting enough light they will flop over. Freesia bulbs are best left to naturalise and will only need to be lifted for division every three or four years.

The blooms last up to three weeks in a vase and are best picked as the first flower opens.

These are super easy to grow and will give you years of beautiful flowers.
