Gladiolas Falling Over - Knowledgebase Question

My Glads grow quite lengthy, and when in bloom they fall over. Planting the bulbs deeper usually causes them to rot or bloom much later.

Unfortunately, the taller and larger flowered gladiolas often require individual staking to keep them upright. It's a bit of a job, but many gardeners find it worth the effort.
