Stored Glads From Winter

dave@blr added on May 15, 2011 | Answered

My stored glad bulbs from the winter root cellar have started to grow, some a foot tall and are white. Do I cut them at a certain point and lay them on their side to plant? Please advise. Thanks, Dave in Durango, CO.

At this point, the best thing you can do for them would be to plant them in pots. They feel that the conditions are right to grow... they just lack light (which is why they are white). I would recommend planting them in pots and giving them some light (even a florescent light will help). Putting them somewhere a little cooler will slow their growth a bit until you can plant them outside.
