Celebrate summer with a glorious burst of colourful gladioli. They’ll make a vibrant centrepiece in any room, says M&S.com food, wine & flowers editor Becky Sunshine
Summer is the season for flowers, and none are quite so cheerful as elegant, long-stemmed gladioli. Grown in the great British outdoors, our bouquet is made up of 35 stems in a variety of colours, including purple, pink, lilac, white, cerise and cream – each with multiple flower heads that bloom in succession from the bottom up. For me, it’s the abundance that makes an impact, which is why I’ll be presenting mine en masse in a simple vase.
