gladiola care

Anonymous added on July 26, 2015 | Answered

After I have cut the glad flowers, how far down do I cut? Can I cut 1" above the bulb and take it out of the soil? And when do I do that? Do I wait for it to turn brown before I cut it down? Thanks for your help. :)

Once they are finished flowering, cut back the flower stem as far as you can, to the ground even, but allow the leaves to remain and die back naturally. In fall, you need to dig them up and store them for replanting next season.
