staggering gladiolus bloom time

Posted by trovesoftrilliums 5 (My Page) on

Next year I'd like to stagger bloom time of gladiolus corms. If I purchase corms early spring, any advice on the best way to store the corms until they are ready to plant? Can I just leave them in a cool basement, or should I put them in a refrig? Any tips appreciated. :)

They will store very well in a cool basement. From planting to bloom will average 90 days. Most will plant weekly for best bloom sequence. Al

RE: staggering gladiolus bloom time

If they are overwintered in the ground after staggered planting, will they bloom at the staggered pace, or simply bloom all at once?

RE: staggering gladiolus bloom time

They'll catch up in the next season and bloom together at their normal time; they won't keep a staggered schedule.
