container gardening

I am wondering if anyone can help me get freesia bulbs to bloom.  I try them every year.  I get a few sprigs and maybe a flower or two.  What type of dirt, watering, light etc., should I be using?  I love these flowers!  But have NO luck with growing them myself.

Thanks for any help, jeri16

Re: container gardening

Freesia is a tricky plant. They are hardy in zones 7-10, they do best in full sun.  Up north they need to be planted in the spring The soil needs to be amended with a lot of organic matter mixed in. You need to space them three inches apart and about 2-3 inches deep. The soil must remain evenly moist. They need regular fertilizer applications though out the growing season. You may find them easier to grow in containers.
