I also planted a few corms of Gladiolus tenuis in one of the beds last 
autumn (2003).  They have not come up this summer, at least not so far; and 
I fear that the voles may have found them.

My corms of Gladiolus oppositiflorus salmoneus in pots are starting to 
bloom, even very much undersized plants are trying.  In contrast, my big 
field-grown plants, still in the field, show no signs yet of 
flowering.  It's a pity these plants look so much like what I remember as 
"funeral parlor Glads" from 50-60 years ago.  They are really quite nice!
