We planted several different colored gladiolus bulbs, but as they grow, they all seem to be a pale yellow. What could be the reason??

    It is not unheard of for bulbs or corms to be mislabeled; that is one possibility. So it may be nothing that you did! When you lift the bulbs this fall, you can inspect them for signs of disease. If they are soft and mushy, toss them.

    Here are some links to refresh you on the care requirements and planting instructions:
