The Q&A Archives: Planting Season For Glad Bulbs

Question: Howdy. I'm planing on extending my gladiola garden. I have an existing garden with bulbs I planted 3 seasons ago. I'd like to plant more, but am looking for staggerd blooming time. I heard that I can plant a new grouping every two weeks starting now and ending at end of May. Is this true, will they then bloom through summer?


Answer: It's true, if you plant your glad corms every two weeks for a period of 4-6 weeks, they will bloom in sequence for a long period of time. Expect the flower display to start in late May and stop in early August, before the hottest summer weather arrives.
