I planted bulbs 2 1/2 weeks ago and I see my glads are starting to grow in. I see some in parts of my garden the water is not draining, there are puddles that eventualy drain shortly after watering. Should I be concerned?

As long as the water drains within a few hours, the bulbs should be fine. If the water puddles and then remains overnight, there may be a problem and the bulbs could suffer. It doesn't sound like that's what is happening so I think things are okay with your plants. Hope your glads flower soon!
