Large flowers are produced on tall flower stalks from May to September amongst thin, linear green leaves. Try some of the stunning new varieties for 2005 that produce plenty of blooms which make excellent cut-flowers. Though gladioli are usually grown only for this purpose they do look stunning planted in a mixed border as an eye-catching display late in the season. Spice up your vegetable garden and plant them in rows in the vegetable plot!

Garden care: Plant corms 10-16cm (4-6in) deep in spring, on a bed of sharp sand to aid drainage. In frost-prone areas, lift them when the leaves turn yellow-brown, dip the corms in fungicide and store in a dry, frost-free place over winter
