To prepare Lemon Frizzle gladiolus bulbs before planting, start by selecting healthy bulbs that are plump and free of damage or soft spots. It's best to plant bulbs in the spring after the danger of frost has passed.
To encourage strong roots and healthy growth, you can soak the bulbs for a few hours in lukewarm water before planting. This will help to rehydrate the bulbs and promote germination.
After soaking, plant the bulbs about 4 inches deep and about 4-6 inches apart in well-draining soil that has been amended with organic matter. Keep the soil moist but not overly wet, and provide the bulbs with full sun or partial shade. With proper care, your Lemon Frizzle gladiolus bulbs should grow into beautiful, vibrant flowers in the summer.
