The Q&A Archives: Gladiolas: Too Late to Dig?

Question: I am in upstate New York and I haven't dug up my gladiolas yet. I am going to do it now. I would like to know if they will be allright next year.

Answer: A few frosts will not hurt them at all, and in fact it is better to allow the tops to be killed off by a few frosts before you dig them. In my experience it's not too late to dig them unless you need a pickaxe because the ground is frozen!
