Sjould we cut down gladioli and lillies after they have flowered?

Asked from the GoYpedia gladioli page



No, just cut off any seed pods, unless you want to collect the seeds. It would probably take several years to get plants of flowering size from seeds so most people don't bother. The plants need the leaves to build up the bulbs or corms so that they can grow and flower next year so don't cut them off.
