I accidentally pulled a Gladiolus bulb from the ground. What can I do to preserve it for later planting? Thanks

    Just hang it in dry place and allow it to dry out. When you plant it next year, add 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt mixed in 2 cups of water and pour it in the hole to give it a boost.

    Stick it back in the ground for now and put in peat moss over winter.

    When I've accidentally dug up a daffodil bulb I've just immediately replanted it. So I'd do as Cynthia suggests.
