Planting+

In the spring, plant the Gladioli 'Rhapsody in Blue' bulbs about 7-10 cm deep and approximately 10-12 cm apart. Prepare a suitable hole and sprinkle the bottom with a layer of sharp sand to allow rainwater to drain well below the bulbs as Gladiolas prefer rich, well-drained soil. Improve garden soil by mixing in a garden fertiliser. Sprinkle some lime on the soil during the winter. Combine heavy soil with sharp sand before planting. These large-flowered Gladioli 'Rhapsody in Blue' like to grow in a warm, sunny area.

Gladiolus 'Rhapsody in Blue' combined

These large-flowered gladioli have striking colours. In the border you will be able to create special combinations. Try placing a group of gladioli next to Cosmos 'Flamingo' or dahlias. Combined with ornamental grasses, e.g. Japanese bloodgrass (Imperata cylindrica 'Red Baron'), you can create a very natural effect. This large-flowered type is also excellently suitable as cut flower.

Care+

Fertilise your Gladioli 'Rhapsody in Blue’ regularly to allow for the growth of new flower buds. It is a good idea to add fertiliser when watering. Stop fertilising three weeks after flowering. The stems of Gladioli 'Rhapsody in Blue’ can be very heavy and sometimes need some support. Completely cut off its faded stems. Plant gladiolus, preferably in a different place each year in nutritious soil.

Keeping gladiolus through the winter

Gladiolus can easily be preserved during the winter. After the first night frost, cut off all stems 10 cm above the bulb and let them dry. Shake the soil off the bulbs and place them in a box of compost and sharp sand. Store the box in a frost-free area. Attach a label with the name of the Gladioli to remind yourself for the following year. By the following spring, you can plant your bulbs again and Gladioli 'Rhapsody in Blue' will once again reward you with its beautiful flowers.

Extra+

Would you like to use your Gladioli 'Rhapsody in Blue' as cut flowers? Pick them when the lower flowers begin to open, preferably early in the morning. Immediately place the stems in a vase full of lukewarm water with cut flower food. Due to its strong stems, the Gladioli 'Rhapsody in Blue’ can 'reach' for water easily. Here is an extra tip: plant an extra group of these Gladioli two weeks later. As a result, the flowering period in your garden will be extended.
