Gladioli are excellent flowers for cutting and make wonderful statement plants; perfect for the cottage to the contemporary garden. Gladioli corms are easy to grow and if you stagger the planting will provide a long flowering period. Gladioli are slowly making a come back in the garden and finding a new audience for these diverse flowers and in our opinion it’s a welcome return.

If you are looking for more subtle flowers, a clever selection of colours can provide your garden with elegance, using the gladioli as bold accents amongst your planting scheme. 

The smaller varieties are far more intricate with intriguing markings. 

How to plant Gladioli

  • Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil for planting Gladioli. These bulbs thrive in full sunlight, basking in the warmth to produce spectacular blooms.
  • Plant the bulbs 15 cm deep, placing them with the pointed end facing upward. For a striking visual effect, plant bulbs in groups.
  • Prepare the soil by incorporating organic matter for added nutrients. Gladioli prefer slightly acidic to neutral soil, so test and amend if necessary.
  • Keep the soil consistently moist during the growing season. Water deeply, especially during dry spells, but avoid waterlogging to prevent bulb rot.

How to care for Gladioli bulbs

  • Apply a balanced fertilizer when shoots emerge and again as the flower spikes develop
  • Tall and majestic, gladioli may require staking to prevent bending or toppling. Install stakes early to support the growing stems
  • Remove spent flowers promptly to encourage continuous blooming. This also redirects the plant's energy to bulb development

Can gladioli be grown in pots?

Yes, gladioli can be cultivated in containers. Use well-draining potting mix, and ensure the containers receive ample sunlight for optimal growth. However, in personal experience gladioli perform better in the ground.

How long do gladioli blooms last?

Gladioli blooms typically last 1-2 weeks, but their staggered blooming pattern ensures a prolonged display if planted in groups.

Do gladioli come back every year?

Gladioli are usually grown as annuals, they wont last over winter. The corms produce a lot of off shoots which are usually too small to flower the next year. It is much easier to buy new stocks each year.

In colder climates, where gladioli are not winter hardy, dig up the bulbs after the first frost. Store them in a cool, dry place until the next planting season.

What to plant with gladioli

The most striking feature of these flowers is their straight and tall columns of flowers. They dont take up a lot of space. They are really useful in creating tall accents over smaller summer flowers or projecting over hardy perennials. Why not try the following:

It is not recommended to plant along side legumes, such as peas.
