Gladiolus in new house

This ia a long overdue post from last year which remain in the draft until now.

              It is hard to look after sick family member, a small daughter, holding 8-5 job,y and doing a landscape in my new house. I neglected the blog since it is the easiest, i simply do not have enough time and energy or willpower to keep blogging. So far the only things that i achieve are growing gladiolus, fruit trees and Japanese moss because they are easiest to grow even when neglected

             Gladiolus bulbs were sourced from Netherland, courtesy of my good friend Peter. Last year he sent me many mixed bulbs and a few packet of bulbs in spectrum of colour: Indian summer is red hue flowers; sunshine partner is blue (range from light to dark blue etc) and many other combination.
I buried the bulbs in early June, 2 months later i am blessed by their beautiful flowers.

first to bloom is yellow

followed by bright red

next to bloom : green


Along with other cut flowers which i plant it is enough to adorn my table for a whole year

     Since he sent me 15 kg of bulbs i grew it a year long, digging the old ones, save the bulbs for this year planting since i cannot leave it in ground because it will rot during raining season and replant new bulbs.        This year i do not buy new bulb, just replant whatever i have which are enough to fill in 4 flower beds
