I have dug up my freesia bulbs and separated them. Is there a powder that I could or should apply to protect them from disease when in storage? Thanks.

Some people like to dust their stored bulbs with an anti-fungal powder. This is normally available at garden centers, though may be sold as a powder you put on plants like roses to keep them from getting black spot. This powder is fine for dusting your bulbs as well.
