20 Corms (61646)

Taller varieties may require staking with garden canes to support their tall stems. After flowering, allow the foliage to die back naturally as this will help to feed the corms for next years growth. Corms should be lifted, cleaned and dried off during autumn, removing any remaining foliage. During winter store corms in a cool, dry place away from risk of damp or frost. In milder areas with light soils, lifting may not be necessary. Replant in spring for another wonderful display!
March and April are the best time for planting Gladiolus corms. Plant them at a depth of 10cm (4"). Choose a sunny, sheltered position in well drained soil. Add well rotted manure or compost to improve drainage on heavy clay soils. Try planting gladioli in groups of five or seven for greater effect. Stagger planting over a few weeks for a succession of flowers throughout summer.
