Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: 1. Dig a hole 4-6” deep. 2. Place corm in hole, pointed end up. 3. Cover with soil and water thoroughly. Two weeks before the last frost of the spring (after the ground warms to about 50°F), plant in a sunny location in well-drained or sandy loam soil. Space plants 5” apart. Stake for best appearance and straightest stems. In zones 7 or lower, lift corms from the ground after the first frost and store them in a cool, dry place for the winter. Before storing, allow the corms 1-2 days to dry and gently brush off excess soil. 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. Space planting times at two-week intervals from early spring to late June to ensure a continuation of mid and late summer blooms. Plant at biweekly intervals for continuous color. Increase water and fertilizer when flowers begin to develop.
