It's my second year to have these gladiolias come up. The first year I didn't get many. Now though I have 2 or 3 patches that have 10 or more coming up right on top of each other. Can you separate bulbs, or do you have to wait until growing season is over and do it then? I'm pretty new to this, and any help would be appreciated.

Glads are semi-hardy, most make it through the winter, some don't. According to the "Victory Garden", dig them up after the growing season, seperate the young corms, store in a dry place and plant in the spring. They suggest sprinkling with captan to prevent diseases and store in something like a nylon potato bag.
