Our giant freesia plants are lying over. Do they normally need staking? Or will flowers grow upright?

Answer: Hi Gardener,

Freesia plants are notorious for slouching particularly if they are receiving insufficient sunlight or situated in an exposed position. The flower stems are generally upright. If this is not the case, because of the number and weight of the flowers, you can stake the stems.

To encourage and prolong flowering we recommend fortnightly use of a liquid fertiliser such as Yates Thrive Flower and Fruit Soluble.

Enjoy these lovely blooms!

Kind regards, Kay.
