First varieties planted for autumn flowering

Five freesia varieties for autumn flowering were planted in week 20. In the first section the varieties ‘Bastogne’ (bronze colored) and Starlight (white) are planted, both double-flowering and very productive varieties. In the second section the new double blue variety ” Tavira ” is planted along with the varieties ‘Ilse’ (clear white), and ‘Morning Sun’ (bright yellow).

In addition to a high production and tall stems, these varieties are distinguished by their excellent vase life.  Harvesting is expected  to start from the end of August .
