Here are a few pics of some gladiolas blooming in my garden now. I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I am enjoying the flowers. If anyone happens to know their names feel free to post it. Thank you!

#1: My favorite so far. " Good News"

I loved the close up ones. Especially that white one, and I don't usually like white, but that was breath taking. So simple and beautiful it made me catch my breath! Mine where just planted two weeks ago. Our growing season will last until November. I hope mine are half as pretty as yours! I just planted about 100 corms. The white one should be printed and framed!
Lovely in deed!
I have had ONE glad for 3 years, and finally wised up and planted more! But this one was inspiring.

U're Welcome Dahlianut. Glad you are enjoying the pics.

Belledonna I love red and this gladiola last year helped my decision to plant more this year. I really love yours too. Do you have any other pics you can share?

Arlene, to be honest, I already love Glads. Last week end I helped clean furniture out a of a house that will be torn down, and in the yard where the birdbath had been , was a circle of Glads. Guess what! Someone pulled every one of them up, lol and I'm that someone. They are small and may be the roadside variety if there is such a thing, but they are still Glads and I'm glad I got them. Have no idea of the color but that doesn't matter . Yep, I'm already hooked. I love yours and if I ever see any like those you can bet that I will get them.

Hahahahaha! U are hysterical! Great finding...Was the birdbath in that deal too? I got them at the begining of Spring season so they were nice and fresh no matter where I bought them from. I got some in Wal-mart, Lowes, Home Depot and a coop they were running here in the spring. Atom-red I bought from the coop and I think one of the white ones too.

The one below is also in the gadiola family.
Peacock Orchid. I got this one from Wal-mart.

Yes, we sell them at the Farmers Market. We put them in bunches of 6. Last Saturday we sold 86 bunches. So that is 516 stems! My son does the bunching. He is just about done with that load in the picture.

Faye at least they left you the glads. The birdbath would have been a plus. You're welcome. Next year we can drool over each other flowers. LOL!

Bernie that is awesome. I love that second picture. I would sit under that tree all day looking at those beautiful fields. Any chance you might recognize some of the flowers I have not been able to ID or might have given the wrong ID? Grealty appreciated.

CountryGardens, you are making me crazy! (than usual) Do you sell the beauties as "cut flowers" or can they be planted? If they cannot be planted, we need to have a crying party for the loss. Sorry, I love the Iris and just cutting the blooms off hurtssssssss.

They are cut flowers. They last about a week.
Not to worry. We dig up the corms, (bulbs), in the fall. For every flower stalk cut off, or not, there is a new corm. We plant 1 & get back as many as 5.
This is last fall, corms drying, then we need to clean them.

Hi guys and gals.. New to DG. I have put gladiolas in the ground, my first try at them. Planted 20 of them couple months ago. Nothing special, just a bag of assorted colors. I just wanted to see if they were easy to grow. So far every single one I planted as about 2ft. or more of green foliage, no blooms yet.
Will post pics when I have some.
Love seeing what ya'll have growing, Very nice all of them!

Welcome from Alaska. Her Bernie, you have a great website. I drooled over your lovely glads. I can't believe you dig up all of them in the fall. I do, of course, but I would think it would be so labor intensive at your volume to dig, dry, label, replant, etc. I have gotten most of my bulbs from Old House Gardens cuz I am a little nutso for heirlooms. I would load up on yours. Your prices and postage is one of the best I have seen. Just not sure where I would put them all. Definitely need southern exposure to get enough warmth for them to take off. I have had Atom for three years and it is very reliable. Last year my order got scrambled and I got stuff I didn't order and not stuff I did. Not too happy, but they made it right.

We were so busy this winter, I never did get any Glads sold.
Maybe next year.
I order from Nagel's in Michigan. For retail they are Noweta Gardens.

Theirs are pest free. Others I have ordered & bought at big box store have sent thrips along. Don't like that at all!
