T - there's no way of damaging those glad bulbs short of running them over with a truck. And it would have to be an 18 wheeler. Twice.
When I cleaned out the front of the house, I also turned the soil (pre-having a clue) thinking I'd be planting there, or something. I forget why I did it, but anywho... There were a buncha bulbs. I didn't know what they were. I tossed them all to the side (about 30 or so) finished digging and then tossed them back in, covering them with about 4" of soil. Maybe. One of the corms (I think, not 'bulbs'?) are actually sitting on top of the soil with glads growing
! I couldn't believe it when thousands (ok may be I'm exaggerating) of shoots started coming up. I'm convinced there's no hurting these things. Hey! (lightbulb) I'll have glads to trade this fall! Wahoo! 'course if everyone grows em like this, nobody will want any LOL!
Anyway, I'm in zone
6, and they're still just leaves. Wonder if I did
damage them, not realizing it yet, and they won't flower
? Hmmm time will tell I suppose. Be right back...gonnna go get a picture of my zillions of glads (notice the numbers keep increasing)
