Orienting Gladiolas corms
I just purchased a bag of Gladiolas corms, I wanted to get an early start for a few by potting them inside for transplant outside later. (Memorial day in NH) Many of the corms have started to sprout. Some of them were 'on their side' in storage, basel plate vertical rather than horizontal.
The sprout immediately turned up parallel to the basel plate.
My question is, do I plant the corm with the basel plate down and the sprout horizontal or with the sprout pointed up with the basel plate in a vertical plane?
Thanks for your help,
