After star gazer lily bulbs and gladiolus bulbs have bloomed can I leave them in the ground all year around--I live in southwest Florida.

Lilies can be left in the ground, but gladiolus corms should be dug when foliage begins to yellow. Dry in ventilated place for a week and then clean the corms of tops, exhausted mother corms, cormels, roots and soil. Store corms at 40? to 50?F. and replant in the spring.
