Create beautiful cottage-style displays this summer with the Gladioli Large Flowering Collection. Also known as the 'sword lily' due to its blade-shaped foliage, the hardy gladiolus plant is celebrated for its upright, statuesque habit and flamboyant blooms which appear between June and August for guaranteed drama and impact. This green gladiolus produces silky ruffles of lime coloured flowers, and will grow to a mature height of 90cm making it the perfect plant for adding height and dimension to your floral display. What's more, Gladioli are also a favorite cut flower of the British florist, so we recommend planting in abundance to ensure that excess stems can be cut and enjoyed in a vase or summer bouquet. Why not contrast with subtler pastel blooms as part of a mixed cottage-style display for maximum effect. Plant in sunny or partially shaded locations to ensure optimum richness of flower colour. 12/14cm corms supplied. Collection consists of 15 each of the six varieties Live Oak (orange), Video (pink), Purple Flora (dark purple), Plum Tart (dark pink), Green Star (green) and Essential (white).

Planting

Plant at approx 15cm deep.

Soil Type

Fertile, well drained soil

Plant gladioli corms about 10-15cm deep and about 10-15cm apart, in fertile/well drained soil in spring. Planting can be done in succession from early March onwards to the end of May at fortnightly intervals. This ensures a continuity of flowers throughout the summer months. 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.
