I just planted gladiolus corms for the first time. Iput 3 corms in each hole created by my bulb hole digger. Will they be too cramped? Should I dig them up and respace?

Glads usually grow 1 1/2 to three feet tall, so they need more elbow room than you are providing. If plants are too crowded, they won't bloom well because they'll be competing for light, moisture and nutrients. Why not dig up your glads and spacethe corms 8-12 inches apart? The plants will be healthier and will reward you with spectacular blossoms!
