Baby Bulbs on Glads?

Posted by bookjunky4life 5/6 (My Page) on

This was my first year planting glads. I have to overwinter them inside in my zone so I dug them up and have been letting them dry. There are dozens and dozens of baby bulbs averaging the size of a pea all over the big bulbs. Do I leave these attached to the large bulbs? Quite a few fell off as I was moving the large bulbs around - can these still be salvaged to grow into large bulbs?

Take them off the larger corms and overwinter them in the same way in the same place as the large ones. Plant them in the spring when you plant the large corms and they should sprout foliage - will take several years to produce blooming size.

Many fell off as they being dug and are still in the soil. It will be interesting to see if any of them survive the winter. Here so many come up they are like weeds and are usually weeded out. Al
