Daffodil Corset

After the delightful blooms of daffodils have faded and the leaves must stay on to nourish the bulbs for next year's bloom, my solution is to get their corsets out and tidy up the bulge.

I am very new to the hobby. I am just learning, and don't know much about plants! Smiling My question is.... You say the leaves should stay to nourish the bulb. So I should leave the leaves up all summer? When is a good time to take them down? My whole life I have seen people run the leaves over after bloom. I am currently keeping the ones I have up, because they look good where they are, and I don't have a lot of plants yet. Thank you! Smiling

Leave the leaves until they fall over and turn brown, than remove the leaves.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
