My Daffodils flowers are dead now. Is now good time to remove bulbs? I am in Philadelphia and spring is beginning.

Thanks, Oscar

Unless you don't want daffodils for next year, do not remove the daffodils now. Wait until the daffodil leaves have turned yellow, flopped over, and you're able to remove them with a gentle tug. If you have to pull hard, they're not ready yet. Daffodils, just like all bulbs, need time (a couple of months) to replenish themselves in order to survive and produce flowers for next year. Give them plenty of sun.
