Collecting Gladiolus Seeds

A few more Glads are blooming in my garden this morning and they are utterly charming. I have more coming on though I am not sure they will bloom at the same time.

For the first time in two years, I decided to collect Gladiolus seeds.  As the seed pods matured and turned brown, I cut the dry tall stalks, cracked open the seed pods and collected the seeds which I put in a plastic bag and placed in a cool area. I don’t know if the seeds are viable or if they will germinate; I will find out next Spring.

I will be sharing more pictures as soon as the other Glads bloom. It’s a beautiful day.
