Planting tips:
• You should plant your bulbs in spring to avoid any frost
• Loosen the soil before planting- with a fork- about 12 to 15 inches deep, and mix in a 2-4inch layer of compost.
• Place the bulb in the hole- roughly 4 inches deep- pointed end facing up. Cover with soil and press in firmly.
• Each bulb should be spaced roughly 3 to 6 inches apart.
• Gladioli prefer well- drained soil, in full sun.
• When planting tall varieties make sure you stake them when planting- being careful not to damage the bulbs when doing so.
