Low growing, it will not snap or be blown down in the wind - no need to plant at the back of the border. Glamini can be planted in beds and borders, pots and planters. Like all gladioli, it flowers profusely and is an excellent cut flower.Show more
Planting and flowering details
Show moreGlamini 'Zoe' can be planted in early spring. Plant in well-drained fertile soil, add some sharp sand or gravel to help the rainwater drain away below the corms as Gladioli like it that way. Place the Glamini corms point up, 7-10 cm deep and approximately 10 cm apart. Add some lime to the soil during winter months. This mini Glamini will thrive in a warm, sunny spot.
Glamini 'Zoe' combines well with other plantsOur Glamini have beautiful, strikingly coloured petals. You can create special combinations along your garden border - try a group of Glamini 'Zoe' next to Cosmos 'Flamingo' or Dahlias. A very beautiful, natural effect occurs when mixed with ornamental grasses such as Japanese Blood Grass (Imperata cylindrical 'Red Baron'). This miniature gladiolus is ideal in pots and planters. Try Glamini 'Zoe' in a pot with ivy planted decoratively around the edges.
Show moreOnce the Glamini's flower buds emerge, we recommend feeding fortnightly. Glamini's stems are so strong and naturally sturdy that they do not require support. Cut off faded stems completely. It is recommended that Glamini 'Zoe' is planted in a different spot every year.
Keeping Glamini over the winterGlamini corms can be easily stored over the winter. After the first frost when the foliage has died back, lift the plant and cut all stems back to 10 cm - allow them to dry off. Shake off excess soil and place them in a box of compost and sharp sand. Store the box frost-free. Label the box so that next year you know which variety it contains. You can plant the corms again the following spring and you will be rewarded with more of Glamini 'Zoe's beautiful flowers.
Show moreThe profusely flowering Glamini is excellent for cutting and they last a long time in a vase. Definitely plant a group of Glamini flowers in your garden. Preferably cut the flowers in the early morning just as the lowest flower begins to open. Stand the stems in lukewarm water immediately - add cut flower food. Their strong stems make Glamini 'Zoe' suitable for use with oasis too.An extra tip: Plant an additional group of Glamini 'Zoe' two weeks later for continuous colour in your cut flower garden.
