Succession Planting For Summer-Long Blooms
"I'll plant generally plant 2 or 3 rounds of Gladiolus bulbs, about 2-3 weeks apart, to extend the blooming time in my cut flower bed. This keeps my yard and my home (and all the friends and family I bring vases to in season) well stocked with this favorite. They're so easy, so rewarding, and always delight visitors and those I bring cut flowers too -- which is pretty much everyone when my gardens are in bloom!"
"I love Glads because they are really just the most impactful flowers to grow. It's so fun to show them off to my friends, family, and neighbors. They are stunning, and the impression they make is deceiving for how easy they are to grow. The key for planting is they do need to be planted the full 8" deep, or they'll flop over! They also benefit from regular watering if you're not getting rain, which is pretty typical in the peak of summer. These put on a colorful light show all their own."
