If you’ve been disappointed by freesias in the past, then prepare to be pleasantly surprised!

Thanks to new technology we’ve been working on, we can now offer you high quality freesias. Freesia Crown Jewels Mixed are double the size, double the colour, double the fragrance! From the world’s leading, royal warranted freesia breeder, this pack will give more than £100 worth of cut flowers!
