Gardening Tips — By on July 18, 2010 2:45 PM

Bulbs exhaust their nutrients when they bloom.  To get your bulbs to bloom again they need to replenish their systems.  So, don’t trim the ugly dried blooms from the plant, no matter how unattractive.  They are there for a reason.  Those old, ugly blooms and leaves are there to carry on the photosynthesis process.  Once the bloom dies and the leaves are totally yellow, cut out the watering and let the plant die down.  Once the plant gets all crinkly and dry just cut them all the way back or mow them and the process will begin all over again next year.
