Planting and care

Gladiolus plants grow wonderfully in the warm weather of summer. You can produce these flowers in sequence by planting some corms every few weeks or so. Learning how to take care of gladiolus will reward you with a huge array of colours and they also work out great for cut flowers. Lets look at how to grow gladiolus.

You will want to plant the gladiolus deeper than usual because they have a tall sheaf of leaves. This will help anchor them against strong winds that might blow them over to the ground.

SUNLIGHT SOIL WATER TEMPERATURE FERTILIZER
Full sun Gladiolus prefer well-drained and even sandy soil If you get less than 1 inch of rain a week, water your plants regularly throughout the summer. Otherwise, water them moderately when in growth to keep the soil moist. 10 C and above Use N-P-K ratio 5-10-10 or 5-10-5

Caring for Gladiolus

  • Put a 2“ to 4 inch layer of mulch around your gladioli to keep your soil moist and help prevent weeds.
  • If you get less than 1 inch of rain a week, water your plants regularly throughout the summer.
