Gladiolus grows practically on different soils, but excessive moisture does not like. If gladiolus grow in peat soils – should be ready to work hard. To protect the plant from the debate, the soil is better to loosen at least once every 7 days, and the depth at loosening should be about 10 centimeters. A solution of mineral salts used for fertilizing flowers during cultivation in the open or closed ground. Abundantly enrich the soil with a variety of trace elements, boron, molybdenum and zinc.
Like many flowers, gladiolus loves the sunshine, but in very hot days, it is desirable to slightly obscure. Do not forget about watering, the soil should be moist.
The soil is prepared in the fall, this is done using organic fertilizer per square meter takes 3 kg of manure (fermented). Also, fertilize the soil mineral fertilizer in the spring, as we already know – sulfate, potassium and ammonium.
Cultivation of Gladiolus is important to feed the micro fertilizers. By that time, while the flower begins to throw out the color, it should not require boron, boron because it helps the development of fruiting bodies. The normal dose is 2 grams per 10 liters of water per square meter. This solution pour the plant several times a season, in the period of occurrence of 3-4th leaf directly into the flowering period. When gladiolus are just beginning to develop, it fed zinc (he contributes to the growth and proper water supply). For rapid root growth are molybdenum, with a rate of one gram per ten squares.
When digging up the bulbs are treated with potassium permanganate (10 g per 10 liters of water). Planting Gladiolus in open ground after the frost should be. For a long time in one place can grow gladiolus.
