Now that my tulips and daffodils are finished blooming, with the flowers having blown away, when do I cut back the remaining green parts?

After tulips and daffodils bloom, remove the flower stems at the base and then allow the foliage to continue to grow and eventually ripen (turn brown) so that the bulbs can rebuild their strength to bloom again. After the foliage has withered down on its own you can cut it off at soil level.
