Gladiolus bulbs

Zone Cold Brook, NY zone 3 | calamityang added on November 26, 2015 | Answered

When I dug them up to dry and store, most had tiny reddish bumps circling the bulb about 1/3 up from the bottom. Are these new bulbs? Leave them alone or separate now or spring and plant separately? The bulbs were new this past summer and were spectacular in size and color. I fertilized at the proper times.

    These little cormels will continue to get larger each year and eventually be large enough to be removed.
