You should deadhead each of the flowers as they fade, by breaking each one off carefully where it attaches to the stem. That way, none of the plant's energy is wasted on seed production. Do not remove stems or foliage, though. They'll continue to put energy into the bulb as long as they remain green. Remove old foliage in late fall or early spring by cutting the dead stalks down to ground level.
