This orange red Gladioli called Traderhorn will produce 10-12cm flowers with a white centre. A great focal point in any garden. Position your Gladioli in a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Be sure to protect your Gladioli over the winter months. 

Plant: from March, approx 10-15cm deep, with width much the same (can be closer in a pot).

  • Flowers: July- September (will flower approx 3 months after planting)
  • Well drained soil
  • South or West aspect
  • Full sun
  • Sheltered
  • Plant at a depth of 3x the size of the corm
  • Gladioli do not like wet soil- so add grit or sand to improve drainage if required
  • Feed with potassium rich feed (such as tomato feed) to promote flowering when spikes start to appear
  • Will require protection from the wind and flowers need staking (take care not to damage corm with cane)
  • Stagger planting if required for cut flowers to ensure supply
  • Corms are generally lifted in winter as they do not fare well if left in the ground during the wet and cold.
  • Cut the stems back when all florets have opened- but leave foliage in place to feed corm
