When Should I Cut Back the Gladiolas

Anonymous added on August 4, 2011 | Answered

I prefer to leave the gladiolas blooming in the the garden vs cutting the blooms. When should I cut the blooms off? They currently have dried blooms in place, then develop pod like items on the stalks.

Once the blooms have ceased and are beginning to dry up or produce seed pods, you can go ahead and cut them.
