Gladiola That Has Not Been Dug Up for the Winter

Zone 8 | 833lola added on May 1, 2012 | Answered

Now spring and it's growing lots of skinny babies or suckers. What should I do? Should I pull the suckers and leave the main plant or dig it up and separate or start over with new corms?

These are probably cormlets that have grown from the mother corm. You can dig them up and separate them, if you would like. They likely will not bloom this year, but should bloom for you next year after they grow some if you replant them (or just leave them where they are). The mother corm should be in there too, and it will bloom for you this year.
