Q.Glads Growing In Partial Shade

Zone Dayton, OH 45434 | Anonymous added on April 10, 2021 | Answered

I have gladiolus corms that have never been moved. they used to be in more sun but now due to trees growing nearby they are in more shade as we move into summer. Should I lift the corms and transplant them in a sunnier spot? Is it OK to transplant glads in mid April in Dayton, Ohio? Or is there a better time of year top transplant them? We are still getting cold temps at night. Frost possible until about May 10. My glads are beginning to sprout now.
