Q.Can I remove gladioli corms in the summer?
My gladioli are planted against a wall. We need to fumigate the house and were told the gas will kill all plants. I want to save the gladioli. Can I remove them now even though they’re still actively blooming?

Since the alternative is getting fumigated, I would take the chance on digging them up. The only thing is they won't get the chance to rejuvenate the corms by the extra time in the ground. I would move them all into pots and leave them there till you can replant.
