I live in Florida and have planted gladiolas. Do I need to dig up the bulbs in the winter? Also, when they quit blooming, do I trim them back? Thanks.

    No, where you live you do not need to dig up the corms.

    Do not trim the leaves back until they turn yellow. They need the leaves to help them build energy for the next time they bloom.
