Newport, United Kingdom Gb

sorry am useless on computer. and this website do not know what im doing but desperate to know what to do about moving glds and should i chop leaves off.



Glad I'm not the only one who's a computer beginner, If you could lift the Glds and store in a frost-free place then re-plant in Spring. Leave the leaves on until they drop off.

If you are in a mild-ish area, then you can move your gladioli to their new home now, but leave the leaves on - they'll give the corms some nutrition. Only remove them when they're dead and brittle.

I leave my gladioli in the soil, and they come through the winter with no problem. I have been know to move gladioli while in flower- when they turned out to be the 'wrong' colour for my scheme! They all
