The traditionally tall and full flowering Gladioli Green Star will add a unique prettiness to your garden with its unusual pale lime green hue and large 10-12cm flowers. Once named the 'sword lily' because of its sword-shaped leaves, the Gladioli comes in a myriad of different colours. Well-drained soil and a sunny location are ideal for growing Gladioli. We recommend planting Gladioli in groups at monthly intervals, starting early spring, to extend the flowering season for a showcase that lasts all summer long. Top quality 14cm+ corms supplied.
|Plant at approx 15cm deep and 15cm apart.
|Well drained, light, sandy soil
Growing at a glance…
Plant gladioli about 10-15cm deep and about 10-15cm apart, in fertile/well drained soil in autumn or spring. When planting in a heavy soil, place some sand underneath each corm to help with drainage. You can water regularly as the growth begins to appear and you can dead head when flowers begin to die off, though make sure to leave foliage to grow throughout the summer. In late autumn when frosty and cold nights are likely to return, you should lift and dry the corms and store over the winter in a frost free shed/garage until ready to plant again next year.
