Disease buildup can be avoided simply by digging up the saffron corms
every three years or so, in June when they are dormant.

have been known to produce 24
Emergence in turn displayed positive correlation with corm
weight and total yield.
06%, promoted greater diameter and mass of corms
, respectively, at 147 days after plant emergence (Figures 5A and B).
In other hand by increasing between row spacing and leaves surface bigger corm
Induction of callus and regeneration of plantlets from corms

The flowers of the planted corms
in the sub plots piced up early morning and counted daily, unit was given as flowers/plant.
magazine found that 88% of gladiolus corms
left in the ground were growing well by the following spring, while only 69% of lifted corms
were doing so.
Gladioli grow from live plants know as corms
, but many people refer to these as bulbs.
While much bulb-planting is now taking place, some bulbs and corms
also need lifting at this time of year.
I sometimes think that everything we esteem in this life, all that is good of the earth, is composed of promise, the promise embodied in all seeds--pine, chestnut, nannyberry, ash--in the kernels of barleys and oats, iris corms

Each season, the parent corms
are completely depleted by the above-ground stems, leaves, and flowers.
