I have planted a number of snowdrops on a grassy slope. When they have finished flowering, do I just mow the grass as normal, including the snowdrop leaves?

    It is usually better to wait for the foliage to die down before mowing or cutting, as the plant bulbs require this to produce energy for next season's flower growth. But, if the grass gets too tall, it should be ok to do so at a taller height to allow for some of the foliage to remain on the snowdrop plants.
