Gladioli are really pretty. This one with the water droplets on the petals looks especially nice! :) I have a couple on the balcony that come up year after year.

Thank you :)
I took the pictures right after stop raining, and before the rain damage the flowers. Now, I'm interested. Do you tkae the bulbs and store them to the next year, or just leave them where they are?

You can do it either way. If they are planted deep, perhaps 15cm, then they should survive any frost you may get.

On the other hand if you want to lift them wait till the leaves are yellow/brown & then dig them up. Make sure you label them, (Perhaps while they are still in bloom so you know what colour they are), & that they are dry & clean before storing them in a frost proof place.

You will find lots of baby corms around the base of the old corm. You can treat these like seeds but, unlike seeds, they will come true to colour when they get big enough to flower in 2-3 years.
