If the gladioli did not have time to bloom in the fall, what to do?
I would advise you to wait for their flowering and then let the bulb ripen to the maximum. We are also just now picking up gladiolus buds, it is affected by the cold, rainy summer and the fact that they planted them a bit late. We will start digging with the onset of cold weather. I think all of October will still be idle, and they will have enough time.
