    I have several gladiolus bulbs planted last year that I would like to transfer to another spot in the garden. My question is, is it still ok to do it even if they’re already sprouting? Wondering if it won’t disturb their growth. I’m really hoping to get flowers again. Thanks you.

    Georgy, they should be fine. It’s still the beginning of spring. They might lose a few strands of roots but they would kick back off quite quickly. Just prepare the soil well, adding good compost.

    Go ahead. No risks. Did the same thing to mine and the sprouts just continued growing as if they weren’t transplanted at all.

    Just to let you know that I already transfeerred my gladiolus bulbs 3 days ago. The sprouts continue to develop and they’ve already grown a few centimeters since then. I really appreciate your responses. Thank you.

    This is great news! Thanks for letting us know! Happy to be of service. Perhaps later, I’ll have a question and you have the answer, who knows?
