Answer: Bulbs store energy for the following season?s flower display by converting energy from the sunshine through the foliage. If the leaves were cut from the plants instead of being allowed to age naturally and die, not enough energy would be stored in the bulbs which would affect the following year?s flower display. This may be what happened to your plants. Allow the foliage to die down naturally and then dig and move your bulbs. Early fall is an excellent time to move them to their new homes.
