Planting Outdoors Spring

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Gladioli do best in well drained soil in a sunny position. As soon as the soil is workable, prepare it for planting. Dig some well rotted manure into the soil. Rake bone meal into the surface at 4oz per square meter. Improve heavy or too-light soil by working in plenty of peat.. Plant the corms 4 inches deep in heavy soil, 6 inches deep in light soil from early spring. In heavy soil, add some sharp sand to help drainage. 3 or 4 fortnightly plantings of the same variety will provide blooms through the summer.

 

Flowering Season

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Gladioli tend to bloom from early to late summer however, the blooming time can be extended by spreading the planting out over 3 or 4 fortnightly plantings of the same variety.
