Summer bulbs | Gladioli Purple - violet


Gladioli are popular summer- flowering plants. They are valued for their long flower spikes which are excellent as cut flowers. The individual flowers bloom successively from the base to the top of the spike. Gladioli normally bloom about 8 to10 weeks after planting. Gladioli require little special care during the growing season. Water weekly during hot, dry weather. When cutting gladioli, leave at least 3 or 4 leaves at the base of the plant. Early morning is the best time to cut flowers.
