What have I done to my freesias? 5 to a pot as recommended, indoor variety so live in the greenhouse, no sign of bugs, aphids etc. Overwatering? Too hot/cold? There are 10 pots of these and 9 of them look like this :(




Fressia leaves can go brown and die off after flowering, when they die back dry corms and store for next year. (Little bit of info:) Fressias like to be planted close about 6 in a 5" pot.

Thanks for the replies - they are at the back of the greenhouse close to the glass, and it got to 32 degrees in there a couple of weeks ago before I damped down (despite shading and vents open on full - so your thoughts must be right.
Thanks Seaburn I'll keep my fingers crossed
