Someone told me that after my glads bloom I am supposed to cut them back. Is this true, and if so, how is this done?

Don't cut those glads! After they bloom, it's the greenery that builds energy in the bulbs for the following year. Of course, if you plan to plant new corms every year, it doesn't matter.
