When I emptied the gladioli pots, there were lots of tiny bulbs growing on the corms. I have put these to dry. what should I do with the next, please?





Dont let them dry out they are too small and may not grow when replanted.

if me I would replant them now in fresh compost is best , they will sprout in the spring , you need to keep frost free , so in the shed or garage is best bring out end of March beginning of April outside, keep close to the house wall and this will help protect them.

It will also take a couple of years for them to get to flowering size, so be patient with them.

Fully agree with the above comments.

Many thanks. I'm off down to the potting shed to get them tucked up!
