Please help me! We moved into our house last year, and with the house came many gladiolas. The only thing is that thay are about 5-6 feet tall and cannot stand on their own. So I dug them all up. What I found was: approximately 20 large bulbs, and probably over 5,000 baby buds in the ground. In addition, I pulled all of the long flowering glads and saved the bottom portion (approximately 50 bulbed ends). What do I do now???!!! Can I plant the tiny baby buds (they range from 1-3 cm in diameter). Also, are the bulbed ends of the flowering glads also reproducible?!! Any advice is greatly appreciated. Please email me. Thanks!
