Tulip Question

TulipMy tulips are losing their petals.  I am not sure what to do now.  Do I cut the tops off or leave them on?  I know I need to leave the stem and leaves until they turn brown, but I’ve gotten conflicting advice about the stigma.  Should I leave it or not?

    Hi! Cute blog, I enjoyed reading through it.

    Tulips heads should be snipped off completely, unless you want the seed pods, which actually look kind of neat, if you are letting the tulips go through the natural phase of dying down. Better off removing them, though, so the plant’s energy goes into the bulb, and not into seed production.

    Sam.
