What month do you plant freesia bulbs?
Our prepared freesia corms can be planted in autumn for flowering inside from January to April or from March (in a greenhouse) or April – July (outside). I have gone on planting outside until July for flowers almost up until Christmas. Plant the corms straight into the ground in a well-drained spot in sun or light shade.

Shane Smith, author of the 2000 book “Greenhouse Gardener’s Companion,” says you can store the corms in your refrigerator for three or four weeks before planting them. Soaking them in water for about half an hour can also be beneficial. Corms should be planted about two inches deep, with the pointed end facing up.
Can you plant bulbs any time of the year?
Ideally, bulbs should be planted at least six weeks before hard, ground-freezing frost can be expected in your area. In warmer climates you may need to plant bulbs in December (or even later). If you miss planting your bulbs at the optimal time, don’t wait for spring or next fall.
Do freesias flower more than once?

Should I dig up Freesia bulbs?
