My Crocus are blooming but are becoming very tall and falling over. Can I cut them back or are there any other suggestions for too tall perennials?

Don't cut them back. Always let the foliage on the bulbs die back naturally, so the bulb can replenish its food storage in preparation for the next season. Bulbs tend to get floppy if they are not getting enough sun and/or if the temperatures are too warm. If they are in a shady spot, you might consider moving them to a sunnier location.

Hope this helps!
