To successfully grow freesia on a year-round basis, you need to make sure you have all the fundamentals right. Blokker Freesia was established in 1997. Our block has a sandy/loam soil with excellent drainage and is located in an ideal coastal climate with sea breezes. The weather is cool in summer and frost-free in winter, with temperatures ranging from 2° to 15° C in winter and 10° to 22° C in summer.
With these basics already in place, we were able to get started with very low-cost infrastructure. As the business developed and year-round production and crop success became more important, we installed equipment and a glasshouse.
