Level of frost resistance of gladiolus
So, it is possible to plant gladioli for the winter, but only if your site is located in the southern regions of Russia. Here the soil does not freeze in winter. In these colors, the root system develops at a temperature of 10-15 degrees, and the growth of shoots occurs at 20-25 degrees. To ensure the best development of gladiolus bulbs, you need to store them at a temperature of 3-9 degrees. In this case, the root system will not inhibit the development of the plant. Corms tolerate cold, but at a temperature of -2 degrees die.
Features planting plants for the winter
Before planting gladioli for the winter, you should think about how to provide them with all the conditions for survival and further growth. For this you need to provide the same temperature as during storage.
If the kids have a dense shell, then it can even withstand - 4-degree temperature.
