Cultivation instruction

Plant Indoors: They are at their best when grown outside.

Plant outside: They prefer a light well-drained soil. In heavy soils, just add grit and sand to lighten it up. Cultivate soils to a depth of 20cms and add some well rotted manure or granular fertiliser to the soil when cultivating. Plant them 10cms below the soil surface. Cover with soil and firm around bulbs to keep them in place. Leave to establish for a few years and protect from winter frosts by covering them in a couple of inches of mulch over winter. Can be left to naturalise for a number of years, regularly feed during the growing season with foods such as well rotted manures, Tomato feed and liquid seaweed for continued flowering.

For a longer season of flowers plant a few corms at regular intervals from March to April as this will give you a spread of flowering.

Care Tips:

Plant corms at 10cms, 15cms and 20cms deep for a succession of flowers through out the summer

The corms of gladioli can be left to naturalise for a number of years once planted.

Plant with summer flowering lilies and or Dahlias for a mass of colour in the summer.

In exposed gardens the flowers may need staking.
