quick glad question
I've experimented with glads over the years, and in my zone, they just can't survive the hot summer days we have...it's not really that hot, but as soon as they bloom they get crispy.
But because I love them as a cut flower, I've got a new plan this year. I built a couple raised beds in an area that gets dappled sun, and only about 2 hours a day of it. It's successfully growing tulips there right now, so I think it will work.
I plan to grow them as annuals, and plan to plant over a period of weeks to extend the bloom season. My question is: How close can I plant the bulbs? Shoulder to shoulder? Remember these will be annuals, so no worries about overcrowding next year.
