Gladioli - Towers of Dramatic Colour
Once considered a bit old-fashioned, but now highly sought after for their impressive pointed stems with attractive, stately flowers in a huge array of colours. These regal, flowering swords have been staples of the cut-flower industry for years. Plant at fortnightly intervals for pro-longed summer flowering. H 90-110cm
Hot tip: If you live an area where rust is prevalent then drench the soil with a copper solution at planting time and spray as soon as any rust appears.
