There are still Gladiolus left and if you have never seen any Atom, then you have missed a most beautiful Gladiolus. I Promise you'll love this one. Ship date is March 23.

Did you plant them at least 6 or 7 inches deep and then when they come up. add some more dirt around them like you "hill" potatoes.

Just a couple of inches, when they are up about 6 inches, add 1 inch around them and repeat this 2 or 3 more times.

You do know to plant the Gladiolus in sets about 2-3 weeks apart to get a longer flowering time

Usually there is a round area on the bottom where the roots will come out from and eventually when the corm is exhausted, cormlets will form there too. The top should have the papery husk sort of coming to a small flatish point. Even if they go in upside down, they somehow will right themselves and come up fine. Hope that was an OK description.
