This study was to determine the effects of 1-methylcclopropene (1-MCP) and silver thiosulphate (STS) treatment on the vase life of Freesia "Cordula" flowers. 1-MCP and STS extended the vase life of florets and spikes of cut -Freesia "Cordula". The longest spike vase life was also obtained in the 1-MCP (4 nl.l(-1) + 3 hours) treatment as 9.06 days, spike vase life of control group flowers was 6.33 days.
