Planting Instructions: 1. Dig a hole 4-6" deep.
2. Place corm in hole, pointed side up.
3. Cover with soil and water thoroughly.
Plant in the spring, after the ground warms to about 50º F. Gladiolus will grow in any good garden soil but do need full sun and good drainage. Plant 4" deep in clay soils, 6" deep in others; the deeper the planting the less need for staking. Stake for best appearance and straightest stems. Space planting times at two week intervals from early spring to late June to ensure a continuation of mid and late summer blooms. Increase water and fertilizer when flowers begin to develop.
