The Q&A Archives: Gladiola Issue

Questioner's Location: tonawanda, n.

Question: I planted glad bulbs in a pot in May and all I've grown is foliage. Why aren't the bulbs making flowers?

Answer: Some gladiolus varieties take about three months to bloom after planting, so what you are seeing could be normal depending on which variety you planted. (There are early, mid and late season varieties.) Also, larger corms will bloom more reliably than smaller corms. I hope they bloom for you soon!
