Now that my plant has finished flowering the leaves are beginning to go brown. When do I prune the plant and how much of the plant should be showing from the ground. I'm sure that last year I just left about 2inches of plant showing, but I can't remember.

HI, Enid,
Remove the faded flower stalks and any fully dead leaves. Leave the rest to die back naturally - they are needed to nourish the corm. Cut back completely when the remaining leaves have died back naturally. If you are in a cold area, apply a dry mulch for the winter.
