Treatment of Bulbs after Flowering. Spring-flowering bulbs such as Tulips, Narcissi, Daffodils, Hyacinths and Crocuses often have to be lifted before the foliage has quite died down. In such cases they should not be simply laid aside uncovered as at B. A shallow trench should be dug in a light, well-drained soil, and the bulbs laid in it and covered over until the foliage has quite died off (A). This usually takes about a month, and the bulbs may then be stored in a cool, dry place until next season.
