This is the same one I had this year! 😍😍😍 I love that the petals look shiny like silk and the edges turn green as the flower dies back. Would definitely get them again next year although I'd love to find some dwarf varieties. These look a bit massive and jungly in my tiny garden 😁😁
More dwarf varieties are not a bad idea as ones this high (about 1 metre) are often blown over in strong wind if not staked. This one was a bit of a surprise as I thought another white one that flowered a few weeks ago would be the last. @ublaszko
Were they new bulbs the ones that didn't flower? Gladioli need to be watered regularly to produce flowers so perhaps they dried out at some point. Might be worth pulling them up to see what the bulbs look like now.
No, I've had them a few years but on a tub & I think they may well.have got too try at one point. They look very lush right now & will soon go I to the greenhouse. When they've died down I'll dig them out & replant in the ground next year I think. Thanks for the tips. Much appreciated 👍 @ublaszko
Perhaps try what Monty does and plant them in an aquatic basket so you can easily lift them at the end of the season. I wonder if perhaps the bulbs split and need dividing so they didn't flower this year but I read the most common reason for non - flowering gladioli is not enough water when they're growing. Suprisingly, they don't like to sit in dry soil even though it's recommended to plant them with added grit.
