WALES, United Kingdom
I have a load of different pots with various Tulips, Crocus and Iris's which have now seen their flowers die and fall off. I am left with lots of healthy-looking stems but want to plant other plants in the pots now for summer.
All the plants that I've mentioned were bought from the GC and were already grown and so were not planted as deep as if planting the original bulbs.
Am I able to cut the stems back and remove the bulbs to dry off for next year? They don't seem deep enough to plant on top of them.
