Our Dwarf Gladioli Mixed are in splendid mixed colours. You will discover white, pink and red flowers in the mixture. The white dwarf gladioli are marked with a red pattern. Add them to the border, mixed with dahlias in similar colours and create a colourful patch. These gladioli are also perfect as cut flowers.
The rich flowering Dwarf Gladioli Mixed are splendid for cutting. Each flower petal has beautiful markings. Dwarf Gladioli last remarkably long in a vase, therefore make sure you have groups of these gladioli in the garden. Pick the flowers when the lowest bud is open and preferably early in the morning. Remove the lower leaves and place the stems immediately in a large vase of lukewarm water with cut flower food. Thanks to the firm stems, dwarf gladioli are also suitable for using with floral foam. A tip: Plant extra groups two weeks later and this will extend the flowering period in your flower garden.
As the flower buds of the dwarf gladioli begin to develop you can start to apply a fertilizer along with water on a regular basis. Three weeks after flowering you can stop fertilizing. If the flower heads become heavy it is advisable to stake them to keep them upright. Each year it is better to choose a different planting place for the gladioli.
