Lime green, an unusual and versatile colour for the garden.
Gladioli are hardy and reliable. The flowers can be easily timed for a succession of tall Summer colour. Gladioli are ideal in clumps or woven through beds, they combine well with Lilies, Salvias and Cornflowers. Their colourful variety allows gardeners a fabulous palette.
The bulbs are easy to plant and don't require a lot of fuss. From planting to bloom takes 90-120 days - they bloom faster in warm weather. So if you plant your bulbs in weekly batches you can extend your season.
Ensure you plant your Gladioli bulbs deeply enough, this will reduce the need for staking. Gladioli like a sunny position and you need to ensure you keep them moist when they are in flower for best results.
