hi there have bit of a problem ... i planted lots of tulips and daffs in my garden borders now they have finished and the leaves can be cut back i would like to leave the bulbs in situ will they be ok anb flower next year . the only problem now is planting perennials because i cant remove bulbs to make room for them as i think i would damage them if i plant perennials over the bulbs will the bulbs manage to grow through them next spring ... new to gardening and am worried that the plants will suffer ... thanks for any advise alison



The leaves of the spring bulbs should have died back completely by now so fine to remove. Yes you cn plant your perennials in with the bulbs, if you accidentally dig any of the bulbs out just replant them. Next spring the bulbs will grow up through the plants - just make sure they are not too tall!
