Gladiolus could be grown in any type of soil provided it is well drained. For good
performance, it prefers a sandy loam soil, rich in organic matter. When the soil is of
heavy texture, gladiolus should be grown on raised beds or on ridges. In light soils, the
plants can be grown in the flat beds. For good performance, a soil pH between 6 and 7 is
ideal. However, a soil with pH ranging from 5 to 7 can also be used for gladiolus
cultivation. A soil with pH lower than 5 should be treated with lime to make it suitable S
for gladiolus.

The gladiolus likes to grow in a sandy loam. However, they are tolerant of different
conditions, as long as the soil is not too wet or too heavy.
