Q

When can I cut back my tulips and other spring bulbs?

Answer(s)

A

Cut off spent flowers after the plant is through blooming, but before setting seed to allow all photosynthesized energy to replenish bulbs.  Let foliage grow as long as possible during the spring and early summer and remove it only after it has died back and turned brown.
