Gladiolas

Anonymous added on August 18, 2015 | Answered

I have an inquiry from a citizen that I cannot answer. He has grown gladiolas for years. This year, many have grown 1 or 2 extra spikes. The extra spikes are smaller thanteh original one. He does not say whether they bloom. Do you have any idea what might be causing this?
