cutting back bulbs - Knowledgebase Question

I've read about how you aren't supposed to cut back tulips' foliage (but wait for the leaves to die naturally). I was wondering if this was the same for other bulbs like daffodils and alliums. Thanks!

Yes, that is correct. Allow leaves on all bulb-type plants to die back naturally as they are providing energy to the bulb's "storage capacity" for next year. Thanks for writing!
