    When all the foliage is brown,, remove the foliage. Cover with  at least 2 inches of leaves, pine needles or straw

    As Ann said cut back what is dead then turn over to air the soil and put some manure down and bark if you want to keep the soil warm if not rake in and leave and now is the best time to plant your spring bulbs for spring
