Digging Up Gladiolus Too Early

sticks added on September 12, 2012 | Answered

Could someone please let me know if I have damaged my glad bulbs by digging them up too soon? I live in the Pacfic Northwest. Do not know what zone that is.  I have already dug my glads up and have had them hanging for about 2 weeks. Did I ruin them? I am new at planting flowers, second year. I sure hope I didn't kill them.
