This is my second year planting gladiolus, they are currently at the 3-5 leave
stage, before the stalk comes. I learned last year that not all corms produce
any leaves. If they produce green leaves, doesn't necessarily mean they will
produce a stalk. If it produces a stalk, some stalks buds' didn't open. I am
currently working on growing a "cutting garden". So my question is, can you tell
at this "3-5 leave" stage if it will produce a stalk? If they wont, I'd like to
just get them out now to save the nutrients for the rest of the garden.
Thank you for your time
