Can Narcissus Be Cut Back When Still Green

Question From: S. Barnhardt - Buffalo, New York, United States
Q: What if I cut the Narcisis leaves back when they are still green? This is mid June and we are having a garden show in our community and I don't want them to remain in the garden. I don't want to remove the bulbs as I have about 300 of them in the garden.

A: By now the bulbs should have had time to take up carbs so they should be OK. Next year let them go until the leaves yellow. Have a great garden walk, Nancy
