Seed Details

Few people realize that gladiolus, like perennial plants, can be grown from seed to flower in only two to three years. These seeds will provide a surprise bag of mixed colours with variable markings in every colour of the rainbow. This spectacular cut flower that bees and hummingbirds will flock to. Stake the flowers if using them for cutting so they remain upright in windier weather. Extend vase life by trimming stocks and refreshing vase water.


Germination is 21 to 35 days. Sow seeds 2 mm deep. Be sure to keep the medium moist but not wet. They will develop into corms in the first year (sometimes two) and then begin to set spectacular flowers thereafter. In zones, lower than 7 it is recommended to dig up the gladiolus corms at the end of the season brush off the soil and store them in a cool dry dark location, for replanting next season. This technique is a great way to inexpensively build up your gladiola collection at a lower cost than purchasing bulbs. For those in Zone 7 and 8, you can leave your bulbs in the ground. We have had success with that in the past, but good drainage and winter composting help protect and feed the bulbs over the winter.

From our customers


I’ve purchased seeds from this company twice and both transactions were pleasant. I really loved the diversity and quality of the various seeds sold. My first purchase was three varieties of cherry tomatoes, lime basil, speckled lettuce, kale, French radish, cilantro and parsley. I called today and had an amazing 25 minute conversation about what seeds could work for my balcony garden as it transitions into fall. They are very knowledgeable, passionate and kind. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer friends or family to this small business as my preference is to shop local. I will be purchasing through them going forward as they were helpful and the quality of seeds are great.

I went a bit crazy this year and ordered seeds from large and small companies all over Canada. The Brother Nature website is enjoyable to browse, and I like how the seeds can be viewed by weather and light conditions, and perennials by hardiness zone. I feel that their prices, shipping offer, and the seed quantities are very reasonable. My Brother Nature order arrived in good time right along with the other seed orders placed at the same time, and their packaging was simple and environmentally-friendly.

I buy more and more seeds from Brother Nature each year! They offer excellent quality seeds, competitive prices, and great service! I enjoy the variety of seeds they carry and their seed envelopes have more info than your regular packet, even some history/origin behind the seeds, which I find very fun and interesting. Highly recommended.
