Question: What should I do with my gladiolas over the winter?
Answer: Most really good glad growers dig and store the corms (not true bulbs) after their tops have died to the ground. You should probably dust them with a fungicide, and you’ll need to protect them from freezing while they’re in storage. Replant come spring. For the record, there is a smaller perennial type of glad that is absolutely charming. A magenta form is the most common, but other colors are also available.
