Gladiola's - Knowledgebase Question

I have gladiola bulbs and I need to know if I can plant them now, in the fall. The container states to plant in March or after first frost. I am getting my beds ready for my spring bulb planting and want to plant these at the same time as my tulips.

Gladiola corms are usually hardy in zones 7-10, so they should be just fine in your garden if you plant them right along with your spring flowering bulbs. Plant them 3-6 inches deep, and cover with an organic mulch material to help suppress weeds.
