Now that I have lifted my gladioli bulbs I have found millions of little bulbs attached. Do I just brush them off before storing or leave them?



Depends on whether you want to increase your stock of them. Whenever I grew Gladioli I used to remove the babies and store them seperately and grow them on in straight rows in the Veg garden until they reached flowering size. Ah, the days of my youth, forever gonned!

How long do they take before they flower please, Owdboggy?

Depends on how rich the soil is, but about 2 years from pea sized corms. It is a very long time since I did this though, so don't quote me on it.
