when do I take out the tulip and Hyacinth bulbs that have new ended flowering



Not yet. If you leave the foliage to die down naturally then that is the best way of getting a good show next year with bulbs fully developed for the next flowering . A bit untidy for a few weeks but worth it in the end

And I never uplift mine and always have a lovely show of colour.

We never lift ours either, if, big if, I remember I dead head but usually don't. Bulbs in pots get a feed of half strength tomato food whilst the leaves are dying back, bulbs in ground are lucky to see anything.
