When is it okay to plant gladiolus?

I just planted mine this week, at the garden centre they said you can plant as soon as the ground is workable.

I agree with Lee, but depending on the number of bulbs available and optimum desirable time of bloom, planting at 2-wk intervals over a period of 6 wks may produce better results. Opinions vary on this, but I would grow glads only as cut flowers, as they detract from rather than enhance whatever else is planted in flower beds.
