Gladolius Corms Still In The Ground From Last Year - Knowledgebase Question

Last Summer, I planted some gladolius which provided me with lovely blooms. When the foliage died, I cut them off but left the corms in the ground. I just read that I should have dug up the corms and "winterize" them. Should I dig up the corms and discard them? If not, what should I do?

I wouldn't dig them up now. Wait to see if they survived the winter and will sprout. If not, you can still leave them in the ground, as they will just become organic matter.
