Me and the donkeys made a movie for you about caring for your flower bulbs after they bloom. It seems to be that the standard practice is to roll the tops into a ball, put a rubber band around them and wait for them to turn brown before you cut them off.
But in my dirt farmer brain that method makes no sense. The reason that you leave the tops on the bulb is so the tops can photosynthesize and nourish and feed the bulbs so they will stay healthy and reproduce for next season.
But if you roll the tops into a ball, how can they photosynthesize? I know, I know, that’s just how it’s done, that’s how your grandmother did it and how her grandmother did it. But you know what? Sometimes old practices just are not correct.
Watch the movie and the donkeys and I will show you what I’m talking about.
