Gladioli

 

Cut flower production in the greenhouse border soil

During periods of low outside temperatures but where there is sufficient light for the gladiolus’ flower-initiation period, corms can be grown in a greenhouse at 12 to 17°C. Depending on the cultivar and greenhouse temperature, harvesting is achieved in 60 to 120 days. Corms can be delivered year-round.

Cut flower production in the field

During periods when outside temperatures do not get below 10°C but where there is sufficient light during the gladiolus’ flower-initiation period, the corms can be planted outside in the field. Depending on the cultivar and temperature, harvesting can be done in 60 to 120 days. Corms can be delivered year-round. Depending on the climate and cultivar, year-round flowering is possible.
