Grape Hyacith Maintenance

I have quite a lot of green growth from the plants, which looks unsightly as winter progresses into spring. Can I cut off unwanted growth now?

I would not cut off the growth, as the plant needs this to produce additional flowers next season. If you are experiencing an abundance of green growth, it could be too much nitrogen (a soil test will tell for certain). You can normally offset this in spring with a high phosphorus fertilizer, or bone meal, which will help encourage more blooms and bulb growth.
