Freesia from seed

´╗┐Dear All,

Last autumn I bought a box of Dutch Freesia hybrid bulbs in 5 different colors. Single flowered as I do not like doubles.

Except for the white one which probably is a good tetraploid, single flowered and very fragrant, all of the others came out as doubles and not true to color, often with different colors. I have had this problem before with bulbs of Dutch provenance.

My question: does anybody have used seed of double freesia? Would the seedlings turn out to be all doubles? Or is there a chance to get a certain percentage of single flowered ones? I would be happy to wait and select if there would be a good chance to get single flowered ones.

Thank you very much in advance,

Bye for now
