About This Website

In 2004, Cates Family Glads released its first gladiolus price list at the North American Gladiolus Council's annual convention. The following year, along with a more substantial catalog, was established, out of the idea of making Cates gladiolus bulbs available for sale to more than just those on our mailing list.

Originally, contained only a few articles and a price list; it's expanded to include a large number of gladiolus photographs, all of which were taken in the Cates' flower-sorting room on our farm. As we continue to expand our gladiolus collection, the collection of photos on the site will do the same.

Cates Family Glads is owned and operated by Paul and Elisabeth Cates of East Vassalboro, Maine.
