Description

A splendid mixture of colours to brighten any garden and one of the easiest and most rewarding flowers to grow. Gladiolus bulbs will not survive winter in the ground in most of Canada. You can keep bulbs from year to year by lifting the new corms after the first autumn frost. Rinse of soil from the corms, air dry, then separate the old dead corm (it is found underneath the new corm) from the new corm. Store the new corms in an open weave bag in a cool, dry, dark, frost free place. Corms can also be stored in a wood box smothered in a bed of peat moss.

How to Grow

Gladiolus bulbs are technically not ‘bulbs.’ They are ‘corms’, which have the characteristics of bulbs. Plant corms 5-7 cm (2-3″) deep in the garden after all danger of frost has past. Deep cultivation too near the roots breaks off the new roots and slows up growth. Irrigation is essential for growing Gladiolus successfully. Rain seldom supplies enough moisture. Start watering when the new foliage emerges. Water if there has been less than 2.5 cm (1”) of rain in the week. You can keep bulbs from year to year by lifting the new corms after the first autumn frost. Rinse of soil from the corms, air dry, then separate the old dead corm (it is found underneath the new corm) from the new corm. Store the new corms in an open weave bag in a cool, dry, dark, frost free place. New corms can also be stored in a wood box smothered in a bed of peat moss.
