I have been checking my gladioli bulbs that I stored in a polystyrene, they are nice and healthy, what do I do with all the little cormlets that are attached?



Either leave them attached and plant out with the main corm in Spring, or gently prize them off and plant in a nursery bed in spring to grow on to flowering size in a few years time.

i agree with owdboggy. that's what I do with mine, ie plant with the 'parent' corm. if they drop off before they get in the ground I just place them in the hole next to it.
