gladiolus info

gardenroo(z 6 s NJ)April 21, 2010

Just read that gladiolus do have to be dug up. I was given some to use with my students. I was wondering if I could plant in a pot in class with students. They could then take home and put pot and all into ground. Would that work? If it did, the parents would be more likely to plant and then dig up in fall. Any suggestions?

Yes, that would work.

Or you could leave the pot as is (on top of the ground). I would include a little 'how-to' store them when you send them (the pots/glads) home. They should really not be stored in soil.

Fun idea : )
