When to plant gladioli bulbs?
What is the best soil for gladioli?A gladiolus will grow in any soil and likes as much (sun)light as possible. For best results, plant gladioli preferably in a sunny position. In addition, make sure the soil stays moist, especially if there is little rain.
Plant gladioli bulbs deep enough; the ideal planting depth is about 10 cm below ground level. Not much deeper, because that can keep them from blooming. Plant the gladioli about 15 cm apart, so that the leaves have enough space to unfold and get maximum energy from the light.
