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.

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

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!

I'll have to add this to my forums, I just love Glads. I plant mine on either side of the walkway to the greenhouse. I probably have 300 or so.

What a wonderful orderly garden. I envy your ability to plan and execute such a lovely space.

Beautiful.....Ric.....do you dig them each fall? I've had some success leaving them in the ground. I'm from Michigan and couldn't there but they MOSTLY survive here....
