Can I remove my bulb leaves yet?

Those daffodil and tulip leaves can get pretty ugly before they finally turn brown. Cutting them off now would also make it easier to plant annuals for additional summer color. And if you want to move some of them, it is a lot easier to find them now than after the leaves are gone.

Good news! In most cases, it is probably okay to cut them off. Don’t try to pull them up right now or bulbs may come with them.

Yesterday Loretta and I were trying to decide if now was a good time to dig daffodil bulbs which have been overgrown by shrubs. We dug up a few and found that the bulbs looked like they were fully mature. So we dug up all the ones which were overgrown. They will be replanted the next few days in other locations.
