It's true isn't it? We're all just a little Glad to be Canadian! Enjoy growing this fun collection and be sure to share a few cut stems with your neighbours and friends.
Looking for something just a tad unusual? You’re sure to turn a few heads with these Dutch Gladiolus. We suggest planting your Glads at intervals of 2 weeks, which will allow you to enjoy them in your arrangements throughout the season. For longer lasting arrangements make sure to cut the spike when only one to three florets are open.
Plant your Gladiolus in full sun away from strong winds. Staking is usually necessary - after the buds have formed place stakes at about 2 in - 5 cm from the base of the stems so as not to damage the corms. In Zones 3-6 corms should be dug up in the fall and stored in a frost free place until the following spring when they can be replanted.
