Daffodils

Anonymous added on June 20, 2015 | Answered

My daffodils bloomed beautiful, but late here in New York. I still have the leaves flatten to the ground; however, they are still green. Can I cut them off? Traditionally, I have waited until they turned brown, and just gently tugged them out. These are still attached and I am afraid that if I cut them, they will ruin my bulbs for next year! Please help with any advice that you have!

Do not cut these. Allow them to die down naturally, as you have in the past. The plants need their foliage in order to produce enough energy for continued bulb growth.
