Planting+

The corms of the large-flowered gladiolus mix can be planted approximately 7-10 cm deep in spring. First you should properly loosen the soil and scatter a layer of sharp sand in the bottom of the plant hole. In this way, rain water is able to drain away under the corms. Place the corms approximately 10-12 cm apart. Gladiolus prefers a rich, water-permeable soil. Improve garden soil by mixing in garden manure. In winter, you should apply some lime on the soil. Mix heavy soil with sharp sand prior to planting. This large-flowered gladiolus prefers to grow on a warm sunny spot

Combining large-flowerd gladiolus

These beautiful gladioli have extra large flowers in full colours. You can use them to create special combinations in your border. Try placing a group of large-flowered gladioli next to arum lilies (Zantedeschia) or dahlias. This striking bloomer is also excellent for use as cut flower.

Care+

Add fertiliser regularly, as soon as the flower buds of the large-flowered gladiolus become visible. It is a good idea to add a little fertiliser to the water. Stop fertilising, three weeks after flowering. The stems of large-flowered gladiolus can become very heavy and sometimes need a little support. Completely cut away spent stems. Preferably, plant the gladioli in a different spot each year.

Keeping large-flowered gladiolus through the winter

Gladiolus produces corms that can be kept through the winter easily. Carefully uproot the plants with a fork after the first night frost. Cut off all stems 10 cm above the corm and allow them to dry. Attach a label with the gladiolus name to the corm. In this way you will know next spring that it concerns the gladiolus mix. Shake the soil off the corms and place them in a box with peat dust or sharp sand. Store the box in a frost-free room. Next spring you will be able to replant the corms and you will be rewarded with magnificent flowers!

Extra+

These rich flowering gladioli are magnificent cut flowers. They will remain beautiful in a vase for a long time. So be sure to plant a row of large-flowered gladioli in your cut flower garden. Pick the stems when the lower flowers start to show colour, preferably early in the morning. Immediately place them in a bucket with lukewarm water to which cut flower nutrition has been added. Thanks to the sturdy stems, gladioli are suitable for inserting in oases. Extra tip: plant an extra row of gladioli two weeks later. In this way you can extend the flowering period in your cut flowers garden.
