life is too short to plait daffs - my neighbour folds them over and puts an elastic band round them - I chop em.

dont tie them, stops them drawing the nutrients for next years flowers.... dont chop them till the leaves are mainly yellow as this does the same... bulbs need to reabsorb nutrients etc from their leaves in order to flowers well the following year, just deadhead them then cut them when leaves are yellow.

I rip mine out every year LOL
Plant them again end of summer.
they have come back year after year despite my neglectful care of them I'm sorry but to dedicate that much ground to a flower that only lives 3 weeks
Pah

Spinach does sound much more knowledgable than me, but like Piffle's me daffs bloom every year regardless of their mistreatment.

no I dig out the entire bulb underground and overlpant with whichever plants I feel like that year!
Store the bulbs in paper bag, in dark cool garage.
