Storing Gladiolas

Anonymous added on October 16, 2017 | Answered

My grandmother use to have about 7000 bulbs. When she brought them in for the winter she use to soak them overnight in a Lysol/water bath to get rid of insects and fungus. Can I still do this?

Yes, you can use this treatment either before storage or next spring before planting to prevent problems with diseases or thrips. A weak solution of Lysol or bleach will work, although for bleach you'd want to soak for 20 minutes instead of overnight.
