How to make your freesia bloom again next year
It's April 9th and the freesia is finishing up its bloom cycle. After the blooms have all dried up and fallen off, I cut the stems off and remove the bamboo staking. The leaves must be allowed to die back naturally in order to have blooms for the next season. Once the leaves have all gotten brown, you can cut them away. It will take a few weeks.
Freesia can be planted anytime here in the Phoenix, Arizona area, and doesn't need any type of chilling or lifting. All you do it put it in the ground, watch it bloom in March and April, let the leaves die back naturally, and wait for next year. It's quite a show!
