Cutting Glads at the Ground.


Anonymous added on August 3, 2017 | Answered

It is August 3 and my Glads have bloomed for 2 months now. Is this time considered the end of their season and is it ok to start cutting them off. The leaves are turning yellow and dead looking. I am in Va. Also should I wait until they turn real yellow and dried out looking?

When the plant is no longer green, it isn't nurturing the bulb any longer. So it is OK to cut it down. Glads are hardy to zone 7. North of that, it is necessary to dig up the bulbs in fall and store them in a cool, dry place until next spring. Mark where the bulbs are so you don't accidentally dig into them.
