Planting
· Ready your garden by loosen the soil to about 12 to 15 inches deep. After loosening the soil, mix in a 2– to 4–inch layer of compost.
· Plant your bulbs 4 to 8 inches deep with the pointed end facing up. Space the corms 3 to 6 inches apart.  Water the corms thoroughly.
· Gladioli like well-drained, light soil and full sun.
· It takes about 90 days from the time gladioli are planted to root, grow, bloom, and store enough energy for the next season.

Care

· Put a 2– to 4–inch layer of mulch around your gladioli to keep your soil moist and help prevent weeds.
· If you get less than 1 inch of rain a week, water your plants regularly. Otherwise, water them moderately when in growth to keep the soil moist.
· Remove the faded/dead flowers to ensure continuous growth. Once all the flowers on a stalk have gone, cut off the stalk.
· Be sure to leave the plant intact so it can mature and rejuvenate the corms for the next season.
· Corms should be dug and kept in fridge for at least 2 months.

Harvest/Storage
· At the end of the season, cut the stalks to within an inch of the corms, then leave them in a warm, airy location for 1 to 2 weeks.
· Remove and throw away the oldest bottom corms and store the new corms in plastic, mesh bags in a well–ventilated room. Replant these corms in the spring.
