How to trick your Glads into four times the bloom.
First, save money and order lots of glads during our Winter Advance Sale. Then after frosts, plant the glads in successive weeks for at least a month, some each week. Result: Flowers to enjoy or cut for over two months in summer. Imagine the arrangements!
This is something few gardeners know, and even fewer practice. Everybody loves glads and knows they’re inexpensive. But few know that, unlike other flowers, glads really don’t care when you plant them. The bulbs are fine until you plant, and the last ones you put in will do just as well as the first, no matter the weather. All they need is water if things dry out. No fertilizer, no extra work. Remember– with bulbs, the flowers are already there, formed in the bulbs! All you do is plant them. (Ok, Ok, the bulbs of glads are actually called “corms,” not bulbs.)
Try it—I can tell you, it works! You’ll have a riot of color in the garden and big arrangements in the house all summer long.
