In general Gladioli prefer to grow in full sun and have plenty of water during the growing season, but will still grow successfully in partial shade.[2] They can be grown in pots or garden borders. The corms should be planted in spring and the young growth should be staked (to stop toppling over). In autumn, the corms should be lifted out of the soil, and then stored in a cool, dry and dark place until next spring.[3]
