I just came across this paragraph on glads in our newspaper.  Dig out when
the leaves turn yellow or frost kills foliage.  Cure for 2 weeks in a warm
place. Gently remove any soil and foliage from the corms.  Store in a cool,
and dark location.  Store insect and disease free corms in a mesh bag or
ventilated, uncovered container.  Check monthly and remove any corms that
turn soft or rotten.

This was my first year for glads at the market. I put the last planting in
too late and the final few blossom stalks were frozen. We're in Zone 5 and
I'm planning to dig them up in the next few days - any suggestions on what
to do or not to do?  I've checked several of my books and haven't found much
on fall treatment.

Should I leave still greenish leaves attached to the corms or trim off?

Any special conditions for curing?

Winter storage similar to potatoes?
