Hello everyone I have 3 post of these bulbs that have flowered beautifully.  (Only bought them from the garden centre very recently and plan to put them in the ground shortly). should I nip the heads off and leave the leaves to feed the bulbs?  There are lots of fat seed heads all over them.  Many thanks

    Yes, seed heads off and let them die back naturally.

    Unless you want to keep a few with the heads on to collect and sow immediately when ripe - although it'll probably be 3 years before they flower.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
