For best effect, plant in clusters of 5 or more. Gladioli need water during the growing period and mulching with compost helps conserve moisture. Staking can be necessary; after the buds are formed, place canes or stakes at about 5cm/2'' from the base of the stems to avoid damaging the corms. In very cold areas, lift after flowering and store frost free over winter.
