Q.Digging Up Gladiolus too Early

Zone dont know | 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.

As long as the foliage was beginning to die back some, your bulbs should be fine but you may want to wait for the first frost before digging them up next year. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/gladiola/storing-gladiola-corms.htm
