Planting Gladiolus Bulbs - Fiesta
I am busy planting all the bulbs I received at clearance pricing from my suppliers. This variety of gladiolus is Fiesta. Its a nice combination of colors which I think will be very dramatic. Here is a picture of the bulbs before covering. My planting beds are filled with a mix of planting mix and compost and poured some bone meal in the furrow before sticking the bulbs in the ground. Bone meal is great for bulbs and tubers, but I have had issues with some of the critters digging up my beds where I have used bone meal. Maybe they think there is something good to eat buried there.
