What do YOU do with tulips after?
I love tulips in my garden. They are the first sign of spring around the corner. But, once they have bloomed it's downhill from there. Then all summer you are left with the ugly leaves. They just get worse looking as time passes.
I am in zone 4. My iris look great for the entire summer. Blooms or no blooms. But my tulips look like h*ll right now.
What do you all do with tulips after the bloom? Do you plant something slow growing around them so they are hidden? Do you cut them down (I would like to keep the leaves so they feed the bulb)? What?
Suggestions of what to do now are most welcome?
I am considering planting them in a container. Then I could remove it once they have done their thing.
