Q.Early Spring Bulbs Sprouting In Fall
Howdy, Help pls. I have an occurring problem. I love the little early spring bulbs. Snowdrops, muscari, star of the snow etc. Every fall the bulbs sprout. Little sprouts everywhere right now. They have been in the ground for several years and naturalize beautifully. My main issue is the muscari. It stays green year around. I would like to cut them down. Is that safe for the bulb? They\’re very green. Other bulbs have been cut down already.My dutch iris is up and about a foot tall, with a beautiful green sprout. What can I do? Thank you I\’m in zone 6 and can\’t figure it out.

Typically, in this situation, you will leave them to their natural cycle. They will die off again and regrow when in is time. If they remain alive in your area, it would be recommended to leave them, as well. If you still suspect something is out of line, then you can contact your local extension service for some more help:
