Freesia 'Patio Perfection'

Half-hardy Corm

  • The best freesias we have ever grown!

Freesias seem to have acquired a reputation for being lanky and reluctant to bloom - Freesia 'Patio Perfection' dispels that myth! This superb variety produces glorious fragrant blooms of florist-quality. Its short, stiff stems won't need staking and remain proudly upright throughout the growing season. Perfect for growing in patio containers where their fragrance can be appreciated. Height: 35cm (14"). Spread: 15cm (6").

In very mild areas, grow freesia bulbs outdoors in full sun on moist, free draining soil. In frost prone areas it is advisable to grow them in a greenhouse or as groups in patio containers that can be moved to a frost free position over winter. Use a loam based compost such as John innes No.2. Plant freesia bulbs at a depth of 7cm and 10cm (4") apart.
Water freesias frequently throughout summer. As they begin die back in the autumn, reduce watering and remove the old foliage. Freesias that are grown in borders outdoors should be mulched with chipped bark to protect them from cold wet weather over winter. Move patio containers of bulbs to a frost free position during their dormant winter period until they burst back through the soil surface the following spring.

  1. disappointing

    By Julie Laughland 29-08-2016

    Bought eight bulbs. They all came up, but pretty soon the foliage started to look brown in places. Four have not produced any flowers, and the ones that did appear (red and yellow only) were very short-lived. They have been treated well, corms planted in fresh compost, plants potted on into patio containers, etc, so this is a disappointing result. Maybe they will do better next year?
