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.
