Gladiolus (Gladiolus) is one of the most well-known summer bulbous plants, which can also be found in everyday life as a garden ornament or cut flower. The flowers that make up their characteristic one-sided flower garlands can reach a diameter of up to 10 cm in some varieties.
After the frosts have passed, plant the bulbs in a sunny place, four times deeper than the diameter of the onion. Higher, large-flowered varieties may unfortunately require support even in this case due to the weight of the flowers. The most beautiful sight is achieved in groups, so plant 6-8 bulbs of one variety 15-20 cm apart.
After flowering, the flower stalks are cut back. Before the first frosts, pick up the bulbs, allow the leaves to dry and place in a cool, frost-free place.
The flowering period can be extended if the bulbs are planted weekly / biweekly from May, so they will bloom one after the other and we will have cut flowers continuously. In our offer you will find large-flowered, butterfly-flowered and dwarf varieties, as well as botanical species.
