Thanks and questions about gladiolus
I had first posted on this forum last fall with lots of newbie questions about growing bulbs, mostly in containers. I'm very happy and grateful to report that your help with my newbie project has begun to bear flower for me! My paperwhites (that I had planted outdoors) are blooming beautifully, and other bulbs are peeking out from among the pansies etc. Hopefully, I'll get an encouraging display this year, and will learn from my first try at bulb-growing.
Now that I've been bitten by this bug, I was wondering if it is the right time to plant gladiolus in zone 8 (north Texas.) I saw some being sold in nurseries and in Home Depot, and wanted to add to my ever-growing addiction :-) Any specific types or tips that you might have regarding these in my area/zone will be appreciated as well!
