    What should be done with 'spent' tulips and other bulb flowers?

    Some people say to leave them to die off, providing nutrients for next season.  Some people whack 'em with the mower to make the yard look better.  What do you, super-gardener, do?

    The green leaves feed the bulbs, so don't cut them off until they turn brown.

    I agree w/ your answer, Barbara.  Now, if I could only keep the squirrels away until that happens...
