day lily 'American sunset' from wally world
last mini rose of the season! smells like strawberries and clean laundry:drool:
Gladiolus 'peter pears' from the dollar store was supposed to be pink supreme but i like this better:rollhappy:
i live in southern Utah where during the summer months we get almost zero rain until the monsoons arrive and temperatures are in excess of 100 degrees Fahrenheit for about four months out of the year but the glads seem to breeze right through when watered regularly. i plant them march through may in 8 inch plastic pots or larger. i have tried putting them in the ground but the ground bugs always eats them. they are planted at a depth of about four inches and deeper in levels so the pots have a nice full look but the corms have room to grow. before i plant them i remove the tunic and soak the corms in a diluted solution of bleach and water to kill any thrips that might be hiding. being potted they do require staking unless planted in a really big pot and planted deep. they also receive a balanced fertilizer every two weeks to keep the stems strong. they also require a full sun exposure or they wont bloom even if the corms are flowering size. hope that helps feel free to ask more questions, and ill keep the pics coming!Very nice!
Where do you live? How do you treat your gladiolus? Whenever I've tried they never bloom....
