  1. Is it EVER OK to cut the daff and tulip leaves before waiting till they die
    off? It takes SO long, and I don’t have tallerl stuff to hide them.

  2. @SuperKater Tot – If you want flowers for next year, then no, sorry, it’s
    not ever ok to cut the leaves before they die off. You can clump them
    together and tie them with twine or an elastic band to minimize the
    appearance while they’re dying back, but they need thse nutrients to bloom
    again. As for the Darwins – if you give them some food higher in phosphate
    when they’re just emerging from the ground, you can get more years from
    them. But don’t get the fertilizer in the leaves.

  3. @SuperKater Tot – the name of the skunk-smelling bulb is Fritillaria, and
    it comes in yellow and orange.
