General Information:
An elegant cut flower, Gladioli can be planted late Autumn, Winter & Spring. In very cold climates plant the corms after the danger of frost is over. Gladioli flower around 100 days after planting. Well drained light soil is best; improve heavy soils by adding organic matter. Plant corms with flat side facing down. Do not over water however keep moist during the growing period.
Pruning:
Corms can be dug 4–6 weeks after flowering or as soon as the leaves yellow late Summer/Autumn. After digging, store in a cool, dark, dry, airy place and dust with an insecticide to prevent thrips.
Dislikes frost, fresh animal manure, boggy ground.
Pests: Aphids and thrips. Dust with an insecticide if thrip damage is noticed (streaking of leaves, damage of flowers), and if problem persists, make sure new bulbs are planted in a different part of the garden.
NB: Extreme heat can cause similar symptoms to thrip damage on flowers.
Ideal for tall background colour and perfect cut flowers.
Tips: Pick flowers by taking a knife down along the stem then twisting across the stem
at the required length.
This method will help ensure that the foliage is left, allowing the bulb
to continue growing. For long vase life, flowers should be picked as the first floret opens.
Supplied as dormant Corms/Bulbs for Spring/Summer/Autumn flowering.
Orders despatched during June-September only.
