Homes & Gardens: Plant of theWeek.
For outside displays, freesia corms should be planted in April in light, well drained soil in full sun. Once flowering has finished, the corms will need to be discarded and you'll have to buy new ones for a subsequent display. When growing for the conservatory, corms should be planted in cold frames in late summer or autumn, only bringing them indoors when frosts are likely, for a spring display.
