The freesias continue to bloom. The first year seedlings are doing well but the corms I potted up from the previous year’s seedlings are behaving very nicely. They have good scent and numerous buds per scape. I just love them!

    The flowers are gorgeous – I can almost smell them from here. They are definitely on my list to grow in my evolving greenhouse.

    LouiseM, the fragrance is heavenly. Sometimes in the morning, when I first go into the sunroom, all I smell are freesias. If the early morning sun has been shining on them the scent seems to be intensified. Later on during the day, the scent of the fairy primroses is more prominant.

    Bernieh, freesias won’t grow here outdoors… too cold. Mine are in pots in the sunroom.

    They wouldn’t grow here either, rosemarieGardener. I have to pot them up and grow them in the sunroom. But I think any brightly lit window would do.
