Gladiolus Are Coming Up
Can you see the Gladiolus coming up? I've had great success with my lilies, so this time I planted Gladiolus. I'm so excited to see them growing. I planted 6 in this area and all 6 are making progress. I planted these bulbs 2 weeks ago, so I'm surprised that they would come up so quickly. After I saw these 6 peeping through, I grabbed the bag where I had a few others stored and popped 6 more in the ground in another area. It is suggested that you stagger the plantings, so you'll have growth throughout the season.
I love yellow, so I decided to plant yellow this season. I love cut flowers in my home, and Gladiolus make great cut flowers. I planting a few behind my vegetable garden too. I plan to use them in my foyer and great room through out the summer. Are you a Gladiolus fan? I would love to know your success and if you lift them in the fall. Stayed tuned for more pictures of their progress.
