an amateur with tulips

I planted tulips for the first time last autumn, and got a really lovely healthy display this spring-time. They are about to finishing flowering now. When can I cut back the greenery? Do I leave the bulbs in-situ in the ground? Do they need to be fed? 030320171, Tomhaggard, Co Wexford Posted: 03/05/2017

Give a light shake of general fertiliser to boost growth of next year's flower buds in the bulbs. Water well before and after feeding to wash it in. Do not remove any leaf until the tops have withered dry. Leave the bulbs in the ground but watch for slugs and snails in spring.
