How to treat Gladiolus corms?
I've just lifted some Gladiolus corms with a number of small white round attachments. Looking at a video on the Web I note that the presenter made up a solution of I know not snapped the stem of the corm and dipped the corms in the solution. They then pulled off the small white round things and treated them with the solution as well and then I lost the video. Could anyone advise me what, if anything the corms should be treated with and what happens to the small white attachments, do they grow into anything?
Sorry - can't help with the solution.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
Here's what the RHS says about caring for gladiolus, from planting in spring to lifting in autumn - https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/152241/Gladiolus-Green-Star-(L)/Details
I have a relative - https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/182096/i-Gladiolus-murielae-i/Details which I now leave in the ground as winters here are shorter and usually mild enough to risk it.
