Gladiolus are cormous perennials, commonly called the sword lily because of their sword-shaped leaves. Funnel-shaped flowers bloom in summer, arranged on tall spikes. Ideal for cutting and planting in borders and pots.
On arrival, unpack your new garden additions and prepare your soil for planting. These plants are supplied as bulbs and should be planted double the depth of the bulb size to ensure they aren’t too deep or shallow. Please don’t be alarmed if your bulbs take a little longer to emerge in their first year or if they don’t flower in their first season. We call this sulking – where the bulb is instead focussing on root growth and settling into their new home. Avoid planting bulbs if the ground is waterlogged or frozen.
