For best effect, plant in clusters of 5 or more. Gladioli need water during the growing period and mulching with compost helps conserve moisture. Staking can be necessary; after the buds are formed, place canes or stakes at about 5cm/2'' from the base of the stems to avoid damaging the corms. In very cold areas, lift after flowering and store frost free over winter.
We want your summer flowering bulbs to arrive in great condition and therefore dispatch fresh to you door at the perfect stage for the growing season.
