Gladioli bulbs and corms should be planted in March and April for optimum growth in the summer months. If planting in the border, ensure to add plenty of organic matter. However, gladioli tend to grow better in pots and containers as they have better drainage. To combat this issue when growing in borders, add grit to the compost for extra drainage and line the bottom of your hole with this compost/grit mixture. Plant bulbs at twice its depth and width and cover with soil.
