Harvesting the Gladiola

Anonymous added on July 18, 2011 | Answered

I planted six bulbs mid summer and now have glads in full bloom. I would like to harvest them and give them as a gift. When and where do I cut the flower, and should they then be in a vase with water? How long will they last?

Cut the flower stalk about an inch or so above the ground. Place them into water as quickly as possible after they are cut. This article will help you with keeping the fresh and lovely longer:
