Abstract

This research aimed to determine the applicability of wet and dry storage methods for the flowers of Freesia refracta (Jacq.) 'Cordula'. It was concluded that the flowers could be stored wet at 0-0.5degreesC for up to 14 days, and dry for 21 days. Longer-term storage resulted in a reduction in vase life and poor quality flowers.
