gladiolus: when to plant 'em in Portland?
Every year I've lost glads to rot when I let them overwinter in the ground. Last year I dug dug 'em all, and stored them properly (no evidence of overwintering thrips, etc). Now they are starting to sprout, even in the dark.
I'm wondering when I can get them into the ground. We've had a cool, wet spring...with still more rain in to come, near as I can tell. Soil is cold and very wet. When can the bulbs go back into the ground without danger of rot?
Thanks, as always.
