Just a little update on some things that have happened whilst I was AWOL...well I did get flowers girls! All but one lot flowered 👍🏼 do I just leave them to die off now and leave the bulbs/corms/tubers in the pots for next year? @susanhumphrey333 @carolecuttingitfine @cassie26 @nessas

Lol! Depends what day it is Gary! 😜 indeed you're not Johnbob! Sorry, was just referring to a conversation the girls above and I had had about feeling up our gladioliuses. Don't say a word..! 🤐😉 @scaryskates

RHS advice: Lift when foliage dies back, discard old corms and store new corms in a dry frost-free place until planting in the spring. In milder areas a thick dry winter mulch may suffice.....or as I do compost them and buy new ones next year! Cx

Pleased to hear you have still been buying plants - was afraid you’d laid gravel and AstroTurf, and planted cars in the garden instead of flowers 😉

Not a single one of the 30 I planted gave flower. Might have planted too late but... why not even one?

I had quite a few flowers eventually Rachel. One pot was better than the other, but there was just too much greenery that overshadowed the flowers. Thanks for the advice @cassie26 as I didn't know that 😊👍
