Gladioli White is a beautiful and exotic flower, perfect for brightening up any garden. It has long, slender stems with white petals that are gently frilled. The plant grows best in full sun and well-drained soil.
To successfully grow gladioli bulbs/corms, you should prepare the soil by digging it deeply and adding organic matter. In colder climates, gladioli corms should be planted about 8-10 weeks before the last expected frost date in spring for blooming early summer. You can plant them over a few weeks to prolong the flowering period.
When planting gladioli bulbs/corms, it is important to space them out properly (about 4-6 inches apart) with the pointed end up and lightly cover them with soil. The corms should be watered regularly and fertilised once a month with a balanced fertiliser to ensure healthy growth. With proper care, Gladioli will reward gardeners with majestic beauty for years to come.

The traditional method of growing gladioli bulbs in the UK is to dig up the corms in autumn and overwinter them in frost-free conditions. For tender varieties, and in colder parts of the country, it will be best to lift them. For hardier varieties, or in the south of the UK, you will probably get away with covering them with a thick mulch in autumn. Divide congested clumps every few years,. You’ll notice that they produce a lot of bulblets, you can keep these to grow on for future years but it does take quite a bit of effort.
