Freesias grow best in full sun. However, they can tolerate a planting location with some morning shade. If you're growing them indoors, a sunny window that faces south is ideal.


Well-draining soil is vital for freesia plants. You can amend the soil with organic material, such as peat moss or compost, to improve drainage. Most regular potting mixes will do if you're planting in a container.


Keep the soil moist but not soggy as new sprouts are growing. Then, water your plants around once a week when they're flowering. Reduce watering to allow the soil to dry out if the foliage turns yellow and begins to wilt.

Temperature and Humidity

Freesias are not cold-hardy flowers; outside their hardiness zone, they can be planted in early spring as annuals. However, the plants need nighttime temperatures around from 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit to form buds. Furthermore, freesias prefer about 40 to 50% humidity, which might be challenging to provide in dry climates. If you don't have access to a cool greenhouse, moving freesias in containers into an unheated garage or shed each night might be necessary to promote flowers.


Once the first sprouts emerge from the soil, apply a balanced flower fertilizer, and keep the plants in full sun. Fertilize them again when buds appear. For the amount to use, follow product label instructions.


Freesia will appear to decline after their active blooming period. However, the plants are probably entering dormancy, not dying, so don’t discard them. Once the foliage yellows, you may trim it off.
