The Q&A Archives: Perennial bulbs

Question: I live in Highland Park, IL. and want to plant orchid glads and Galdiolas. It's recommended to take out the bulbs in the fall and store over winter. Will they survive and bloom again if I don't dig them up?

Answer: I'm afraid that if you live where the ground freezes you will need to dig your corms each year. If you chose not to dig, you will need to purchase new corms each spring.
