Answer: Freesias do best as potted plants in Florida. Corms, which are specialized stems, should be dug up and stored when foliage turns yellow. Digging them up each year and storing them in the refrigerator may be more trouble than it is worth but that decision is yours. Store them in a mesh bag in the refrigerator after digging and then plant the corms in pots from November to December about 2 inches deep in rich potting soil. A six inch pot will accommodate about 3-6 corms. Expect blooms to occur from January to February. Freesia produces a variety of colors and prefers partial shade.
