I have planted around 50 Gladiolus bulbs in a single row of 25 on each side of my flower bed edge in front of my entrance.
They are all nice and long now. Couple of them have started the stalks where i can see the buds coming out with flowers.
My biggest dilemma(i searched through the internet and didn't find anything clear) is once the whole stalk is open with flowers, can i cut the stalk? Will a new stalk start coming from there for more flowers to come? Or is it that the gladiolus gives only one stalk of flowers one time and is it done for the season?
all the websites say 'if you need continuous cut flowers, plant more corms subsequently and that way they will keep coming till frost'.
I am all confused whether these bulbs will bloom only once for the season or will bloom continously.
