Frequently Asked Questions

The best time to plant Vuvuzela gladiolus bulbs is in the spring, after the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up to at least 60°F. Planting at this time will allow the bulbs to establish roots and grow before the hot summer temperatures arrive.

Make sure to choose a well-draining location that receives at least six hours of sunlight each day. Plant the bulbs 4 inches deep and 4-6 inches apart, with the pointed end facing up. Water thoroughly after planting and keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. With proper care, Vuvuzela gladiolus bulbs will produce stunning flowers in the late summer or early fall.

It is recommended to soak Vuvuzela gladiolus bulbs before planting them. Soaking the bulbs helps to speed up the germination process and encourages healthy root growth. It also allows the bulbs to absorb moisture, which helps to prevent them from drying out during the initial stages of growth.

To soak the bulbs, simply place them in a container filled with lukewarm water for a few hours before planting. However, it is important not to soak the bulbs for too long, as this can lead to rotting. Typically, soaking the bulbs for 2 hours is sufficient before planting.

Although soaking can be beneficial, it is not a must to do. It can be a good thing when your Gladiolus bulbs look dry, otherwise it is not per se necessary.

Vuvuzela gladiolus bulbs are tender bulbs that cannot tolerate freezing temperatures. Therefore, it is not recommended to leave them in the ground during winter in areas with harsh winters. Therefore, it's best to dig up the bulbs before the first frost, store them in a cool and dry place, and replant them in the spring after the last frost. This will ensure the bulbs' survival and produce healthy plants for the following year.
