my snowdrops are planted on a grassy slope,do I mow as normal after flowering or do I do something to the leaves before?



You really ought to leave the leaves to die down naturally before you mow the grass. The bulbs need the food produced by the leaves to build up the reserves to flower again next year. Leave the leaves alone!

~Sure thing - if you mow the leaves off that is then end of your snowdrops.
