Dads Garden Gladioli, do or don't ???????

Posted: 29/08/2017 at 15:38

It depends whereabouts in the country you are. Gladioli do not like to be left in cold and damp soil, they will rot.  I can leave mine in the ground in southern England.  Do not throw the big bulb away, replant next year.  It will take the new small bulbs years to get to flowering size.

HELP! Weeds are taking over.

The weed you don't recognise is a dock.  If you use weedkiller you need to leave the dead foliage in place for a couple of weeks while the weedkiller kills the roots.  Looking at picture I think weedkiller is the way to go.  All those weeds have persistent roots which may regrow from tiny fragments.
