Gladioli bring a burst of height and colour to your summer border.

430150 Price:  £3.99

Gladioli bring a burst of height and colour to your summer border and this selection with its pastel shades of pinks, apricot, whites and mauves, will be in flower from July until September.  Gladioli (also known as the sword lily) are well known for their elegant, towering flower spikes that come in a dazzling array of colours and heights and they make excellent, long lasting cut flowers.
Gladioli are classic herbaceous perennials that grow from bulbous corms covered with fibrous papery skin and are very easy to grow given the right growing conditions.  Great in flower borders, cottage gardens and pots. Ideal grown in rows on an allotment or in the vegetable patch to be used as cut flowers.

A sunny sheltered aspect is best for gladioli to thrive, so any site other than north facing will work well.
Plant at three times the corm depth in early spring for summer flowering. 
Taller varieties of gladioli may need staking especially if you are growing them for cut flowers or for exhibiting at shows.
Once the first frosts have been, dig up the corms, let them dry and store for the winter in hessian bags in a frost-free shed/greenhouse. Replant either in pots or in the ground in spring.
