Gladiola Care

Should the flattened ‘mother bulb’ be removed from the new bulb in the fall prior to storage, prior to planting in the spring or not removed at all?

I would wait until spring to separate them. Separating them in the fall creates a wound, which increases the chance that disease and rot could get into the corms.

Why Do My Glad Bulbs Come Up Out of the Ground and Set on Top of the Groud

My glad bulbs come up out of the ground and then they lay on the surface. They are not in the ground.

Yes, quite happily. Just plant them in containers as you would in the ground and make sure to keep them watered.

Gladiolus Corms

My gladiolus corms started growing in my basement. What should I do with them since I live in northern Iowa and it’s too soon to plant?

Small, Black Fly-Like Insect on Gladiolus

For the past two years, I have had tiny fly-like insects on my gladiolus plants. They literally drain the stem and the flower. What should I use to get rid of them?

Gladiolus Corms

Do the corms need any kind of treatment before planting?

ANSWERS

Some people like to treat them with fungicide before planting, but this is not required to plant them. They will grow fine without any special treatment.
