Claret red blooms for an absolutely classy show.

Gladiolus are bright and beautiful summer flowers. Their tall stems look stylish at the back of a border or bed, along a fence line or planted in a clump.
A trick of the trade is to plant your Gladioli bulbs in batches over a few weeks. This will extend the flowering show. When planting in warm weather allow 90 days to flower and cooler weather 110 days.
The flowers of Gladioli are excellent for picking, we recommend picking them as the first bud opens to get the longest vase life from them. It is also a good idea to pick in the morning before the heat of the day.
GLADIOLI CULTURAL NOTES (Gladiolus)

SITUATION:
Plant corms in a sunny, spot into prepared soil. Add lots of well rotted animal manure or compost to the soil prior to planting, this adds nutrients to the soil and can increase the quality of the flowers greatly into the future. Work the manure through the soil 4-6 weeks before planting, digging deeply to ensure good drainage. Don't worry if you miss the boat, just do it at the time of planting. Gladioli should be planted in an open position and their stems kept clear of weeds.

TIME OF PLANTING:
June to December. Earlier plantings can be undertaken in warmer areas. Plant 12 cm deep and space 12-18 cm apart. When planting in warm weather allow 90 days to flower and cooler weather 110 days. Gladioli grow 1-2m tall and 15-30cm wide.

GENERAL CARE:
As the foliage begins to grow, add a light top dressing of fertiliser. If there is poor air flow, fungus can occur, control by spraying with a suitable fungicide. In warm weather, Gladioli can be affected by Thrip
