Hi, Everyone,

We have decided to close the Almanac forums.

The good news: Now you have the ability to comment on the www.Almanac.com Web site pages!

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Sincerely,
The Old Farmer's Almanac

I tried posting this once, but I think the forum-monsters ate it, since I didn't see it in the active threads list. Here goes attempt #2...

I'm new to bulbs (corms in this case) and I have a giant bag of glad corms that I think I've wrecked. I'm in southern Michigan; is it too late to plant them? If so, how do I determine if they're viable, and how do I store them for next year?

I managed to get a few tester-glads in the ground, and I have one set of yellow and withered leaves, and nine sets of green leaves without flowers or flower stalks. Am I impatient, or will these not flower this year? Can I encourage them to flower?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance!
