I have inquiries out to people who gifted the garden.
We need to know the origin of gladiola bulbs that survived last winter in the ground.

  1. curiosity or big mystery? I'm guess you would like to get more from the same origin?
    I'm glad I don't know a gladiola from a sadiola.

  3. OK, I didn't see them in the last post but do now. No, I did not give them to you or snuck into your yard and put them there.

  7. Drove by a garden in Florence, KY that was chock-a-block with gladioli in every colour imaginable; loved the garden, and love your glads.

  11. I love a good mystery. Once I received a potted plant as a spring gift (hostess gift) and kept it until it faded and died indoors and then just turned it out into the garden. That's how I ended up with orange tulips! Any chance you received a plant and chucked it out into the garden once it was done? -Jenn

  13. Enjoy them, no matter the origin! Mine did not survive the winter and I was sad. I have a hole in my garden now that needs filling.

  14. The definitive word from the friend from whose mother's garden came the glads: they have not been dug up for quite a few years she knows of, excepting the shovelfull I took last fall.

  19. Had a friend whose mom planted glads before she died. They always come back in Michigan where no glads survive. Sometimes just a fun story.
