Sowing, Seeds, Planting Corms should be planted out once the soil has warmed up from late spring to early summer, if your soil is not free draining add plenty of grit or sharp sand to the planting hole. May be planted earlier in containers and placed in a cool, frost-free place to be moved outside once the risk of frost has passed.
Care Tips Water regularly during growing season and stake tall varieties. Lift after first frosts. If you're growing in containers, stop watering at the end of summer and bring the pots indoors for the winter. Leave them in their pots or take them out and dry. Put them out again next spring after danger of night frosts has passed. Find out more advice about how to plant and grow gladioli corms here.
Flowering July - October
Vase Life Remove the bottom leaves on gladioli, I prefer to leave the spike tip as this is part of the plants appeal but removing it will encourage more flowers below.

Although the acidenthera Blackcurrant Fizz are very beautiful I was expecting acidenthera when in fact they are gladiolus.
