Abstract: The present study investigated that the effect of three date of planting date 5th October, 20th October, 5th November and cultivars Nova Lux, White Prosperity, Rose Supreme, American Beauty and Big Time Supreme effect on Gladiolus grandiflorus L. characters like number of daughter corm, weight of corm, number of cormlets per plant and size of corm.
