I need to know when to cut my Tulips down as they are beginning to wilt and their heads are starting to droop. thanks. Carol
When do I cut my Tulip flowers once they have started to wilt.
Tulip leaves should be allowed to remain intact until they turn yellowish. Shortening or cutting them down before this point will compromise next year's bloom. This is true of all bulbs, corms and tubers. These plants do not store energy in roots; it is all in the bulb.
