This spring I planted glad bulbs (I'm new to this bulb business). The leaves grew immediately but it never flowered. What am I doing wrong?

You may be rushing the season - glads bloom in late August in the Pacific Northwest. They need full sunshine, and some glads will bloom a few weeks sooner if they're planted in a spot where they get reflected heat, such as next to a solid fence or near the foundation of a house. Be a little more patient. If your glads don't bloom this year, it could be that the corms were on the smallish size. They'll reach maturity this summer and bloom for you next year.
