Our Story

Growing Flowers with the Largest, Longest-lasting Blooms Possible

At Glad-A-Way, we are proud that all of our flowers are certified American grown and that our breeding and hybridization program produces a beautiful selection of unique varietals that you are sure to enjoy. Our unique process, together with the ideal soil and climate of our California growing region, allows us to provide both award-winning traditional colors and exciting new varietals. Everything is grown on-site at Glade-A-Way, from the bulbs to the cut flowers. 

Our consistently mild temperatures enables Glad-A-Way to harvest outstanding varieties of gladiolus throughout the long glad season. 

Our Process & Location Set Us Apart

We harvest our bulbs after the growing cycle to reduce waste, and create the strongest, most vibrant flowers.

From Our Own Fields

It all starts with our own bulbs; harvested at the end of the previous growing cycle. We harvest bulbs from our fields for separation, cleaning, and preparation for planting. Using our own bulbs not only drastically reduces waste & carbon emissions from shipping, it helps us create the strongest, most disease-resistant flowers. This means we can efficiently produce beautiful, vibrant flowers using the most responsible farming methods available. Our premium flowers means that our glads’ have a long vase-life, making them a tremendous value for flower lovers everywhere.

Returning to the Ground

To product the best flowers for our customers with the longest life, we rotate plantings through various fields to ensure nutrient-rich soil at every planting. Once fields are graded and prepared for planting, our own bulbs are returned to the soil with our proprietary blend of fertilizers to begin their next growing cycle.

Flowers are harvested and immediately transported to our nearby storage facility for processing.

Time is of the Essence

At just the right time, our flowers are hand-harvested and quickly transported to our nearby warehouse for sorting, packing, and shipping to locations around the United States.

Scanning and Sorting

We're investing in the technology of tomorrow to ensure accurate & timely sorting of our flowers so we can reduce handling and expedite delivery to our customers.

Bunches of Joy

Our flower bunches are tagged and placed in flower sleeves if requested, then they're off in cold storage shipments so they arrive fresh and ready to open at their destination.

Opening Just For You

We don't think it's bragging to say our flowers are among the highest quality cut gladioli in the world. We thoughtfully care for our plants from bulb to bloom and back again.
