identifying freesia corms
I have many freesias which have finished blooming. Many of the stems have what appears to be new corms where the flowers were. Can they be planted and, if so, when is the best time to gather them (my husband thinks I should wait until they have dried, I think many of them will fall off and blow away if I do that)? Also, can I plant them now, or do I need to wait until fall? Thank you so much!

You can try to grow Freesia from the seed pods that form. It can be very difficult to germinate them.
I have had garden friends tell me that they just remove them and scatter on the ground or you can just let them naturally dry and drop.
