Hi all,

I have a new batch of seedlings from seed received as "Gladiolus 
saundersii" about to bloom.  So far they look not much different from 
things I've grown as G. oppositiflorus salmoneus in the past.  This will be 
the second batch of seeds of G. saundersii I've tried.  I see no 
differences between the two species as I've grown them here from seed.

Flowers of the new lot of "saundersii" should be well opened in a couple 
more days.  I'll try to post pictures then, on the Bulbs_Images list
( ).

I try to grow some of my Gladiolus in pots.  What do you folks find to be a 
satisfactory potting medium and pot size for blooming Gladiolus in containers?
