Introduce bulbs of tall Gladiolus Ruffled Kirov; this rare summer bulb blooms extra well in a sunny spot on your plot in some good, rich well-draining soil. (Add a bag of Organic Farm Manure to the existing soil if you are unsure if your existing soil is suitable for bulbs.)
In mid to late summer tall spires give out big white flowers with ruffled petals with contrasting purple splash. With open trumpets every flower attracts those pollinating insects that turn the flowers of fruiting vegetables into fruits like strawberries, tomatoes and beans.
Suitable for cutting, this variety makes a great vase flower. Paired with other summer bulbs like cannas and other varieties of gladioli you can double the impact of your vase display.
Want displays for longer than one season? Dig up the bulbs in November if it starts getting frosty outdoors. Rinse the soil off the bulbs and leave to dry in the sun for a few hours. Then place in a crate lined with newspaper and bury the bulbs in dry compost to keep the bulbs from drying out completely without being too wet. Over winter in the greenhouse or in a dry shed.
