Fall garden maintenance and bulb planting
1) plant tulip and allium bulbs?
2) do fall garden maintenance (e.g., cut back shrubs and perennials)?
The weather's been so nice it's hard to cut things back!

If the leaves are still green then you should leave them alone. It's busy storing nutrients for the next year, if you cut them down now you'll damage it. Wait until it yellows on its own. It'll either yellow as days get longer or yellow once the frost kills the top growth. If in doubt it's usually better to wait until later. Some plants actually do better if they only get trimmed back in early spring!
