Care of Gladiola Corms

Anonymous added on October 25, 2014 | Answered

I harvested my glad corms a couple weeks ago -- let air dry for 4 days before removing (still green) (before frost} stems. I cut stems off corms about 4 inches above corm tops. I am concerned in spring when it comes time to prepare them to plant that in removing this long stem I will "break" off any sprouts that may start to develop. Should this be removed down to top of corm this fall at time of storage?
