Why we love it:Specification Delivery & Returns
Although glads may seem a little old-fashioned, if you plant in bold blocks they can make stunning late summer statements. This is really no exception, and we don't think you'll find a sweeter fragrance in your garden as summer moves in to Autumn. Strong arrow like foliage gives structure to borders during the growing season, while late summer spikes give excellent border display. So easy to grow, simply, plant sit back and watch through the season. Although it's a tender perennial, you should be able to leave it outdoors in town & sheltered gardens with nothing more than a mulch.
What you need to know:
What to expect: 50 x bulbs in package with instructions. Wait until March to plant up when the worst frosts are over. Plant Type: Frost Hardy Perennial. Flowers: White flowers with purple throats, extremely fragrant, from August through to Autumn. Approx Height when mature: 100cm Position in the Garden: Full sun, in borders or containers. For best results plant in batches of 5-10 culms to create bold blocks. Soil Type: Moist, fertile but free-draining. Not heavy clay. Hardiness: Frost-hardyCaring for your plant: In mild areas with free-draining soil, Gladioli can be left to overwinter in the ground or pots, but in colder areas lift and store to protect them from the worst winter weather. Lift once the foliage has died back, discard old corms and keep new corms in a frost-free location such as the garage. In milder areas where there's little risk of continuous frosty periods, or in sheltered urban gardens with the added protection of walls, simply leave overwinter with good mulch of compost or bark.
