Answer: Trim away the brown stems and leaves at ground level at the base of the plant -- if fully dried they may simply fall loose and free into your hand, especially after frost has hit. (Be careful not to damage any of the roots or eyes if they are near the surface.) Clean up and remove the old stems and foliage from the growing area so as to limit any carryover of disease or pest problem from one year to the next. Things should be gorgeous at your house next spring!
