• Fragrant-ish Freesias

    Home grown freesias

    Having heard recently that modern strains of freesias do not have the fragrance they used to (it’s shelf-life that matters now) I was interested to see how the ones I’ve grown performed.  It has to be said that the initial impression was that the scent was quite faint, but then on one of the warmer days I went into our enclosed courtyard and  found the air was freesia-scented.  So maybe all is not lost after all.
