My suggestion is, stop watering, during winter rains put the pots on side to protect from rain water, water them in mid Feb. remove the dead leaves.

Please Arif sahib and Izhar sahib please guide, should I pull the bulbs out in early December or leave them there. If I leave them there should I cut there leaves. Shall be obliged for guidance
You can just restrict water as mentioned by Brig. sb.
