Question: 306-5201
How do I store gladioli for the winter? Andy, Nashua, NH

Mort's Answer:
Let them sun dry after you have pulled them out. A day later cut off the top growth from the bulbs. Remove all the fibrous root from the bottom. If the bulb shows any sign of brown or black spots or mapping, through those bulbs in the dump. You can place them in a brown paper bag or put them in a bin with new sawdust for the winter. Store them in a cool dry place( around 40 degrees).You can dust with Bordeaux Mix to prevent fungal growth and boytritis.
