Among the most striking of the flowers that bloom from bulbs, gladiolus are best known and most often grown for cut flowers. You will find that our large corm sizes produce stronger plants and larger flowers than the so-called ‘landscape’ (smaller) bulb sizes often offered in the trade.

Plant Gladiolus corms outdoors in late spring after your last average frost date in your area. Plant every two weeks up to 85 days before your first fall frost for a succession of blooms. Easily plant by digging a 3-5 inch deep trench and space corms 4-6 inches apart. Although you may plant gladiolus corms directly into the soil, you may wish to consider a simple, yet effective fungicidal treatment prior to planting: Fill a 2 gallon bucket with water and add 1 cup of household bleach. Place the gladiolus corms in the water, soaking them for about 15 min. to 1/2 hour. Remove and let dry naturally. Plant normally.
