Planting Gladiolus  in Pots


are fairly easy to grow in containers if you have the right tools! If you lack space in your garden, planting gladiolus in pots allows you to leave them anywhere there's sunshine - indoors or out!

What You'll Need

Place the corms with the roots facing downward. If your glads came with instructions for planting depth and spacing, follow those. Cover with 6 inches or more of potting soil. Add a stake at this point if you’re growing a larger variety. 


Water them thoroughly once a week. If you’re growing them in a pot outdoors, bring them inside if there’s a threat of frost soon after planting. You may want to fertilize your gladiolus partway through its growing period.
