Care

– Plant when danger of frost has passed and the ground has warmed.

– Plant 2-3 times the depth of the bulb and 15cm/6” apart.

– In well drained moist soil, in a sunny position.

– Gladioli prefer to be in spaces where no other plants compete with them.

– Water regularly as the growth begins to appear.

– You can hill up the soil when plants are about 15cm/6” tall to help support the stems.

– Dead head as necessary, but leave foliage.

– Bulbs will winter in the ground if they are in a warm sheltered position.

– If exposed and prone to cold conditions Gladioli will benefit from lifting and storing in a frost free location.

– The smaller or mini varieties of Gladioli, such as nanus or colvillei are in general hardier than the larger variety.

– Acidanthera, contrary to general belief, is not hardy and needs lifting and storing unless your own experience has proved different.
