Question: when do I plant glads and do I have to lift them in the fall? . how deep do I plant my iris?

Answer: Glads should be planted in the spring in your gardening region and then dug in the fall. Corms can be lifted anytime 4 weeks past the bloom but before the tops turn brown. Cut the tops off the corm and lay them out to dry in a warm well ventilated area-a fan is a definite plus. Store them in a cool, dark area where temperatures are about 45F degrees. Iris rhizomes should be planted just barely below the soil surface. Best wishes with your garden!
