When is the proper time to transplant gladiola bulbs in central florida
Here is some info to help you out.
Bulbs aren't just for spring and summer; several kinds of bulbs can be planted in the autumn in Florida. Unlike tulips and many other bulbs, these bulbs don't need to chill before blooming.
The gladiola produces tall spikes of large blossoms in a rainbow of colors. It can be planted anywhere in the state, and will bloom within three months of planting.
In Florida, early fall is a good time to divide bulbs. These plants develop "baby" bulbs, which, when grown to full size, are known as offsets. To divide bulbs, simply separate these offsets and replant them, pointy end up, to create new plants. Store bulblets in a cool, dry place for up to a week before planting.
I hope this info helps!

Hi Frank. Because the climate in Florida is warm and moist, you can easily grow Gladiolus. Split them using a pointed shovel. And transplant them in a place that gets full sun.
