It depends on the climate you're in. Gladiolus are perennials but can have
troubles in a) very cold climates b) very wet/humid climates. I live in the
equivalent of Zone 8 and recieve frosts in winter. The 'glads' are happy -
they re-emerge every spring and put on a glorious show. The only other reason
you'd want to dig them up is to divide them when they get overcrowded. So, no,
don't bother digging them up where you are - they seem fine as they are!
