Planting a row of gladiolus - plum tart

I planted a row of gladiolus today.   They are size 3 bulbs which is the smallest available that will bloom.   They will not have big blossoms, but they are very affordable and I will fatten them up and resell the once that are big and replant the smaller ones along with any babies that grow from the mother bulb.  This variety is plum tart.   I planted them in a furrow - after placing some bone meal in the furrow.   I then covered them up making a raised area because they are watering by flooding each some of the raised area.   See my post on aquaponics watering.
