Perhaps a silly question, but.. I have quite a large number of summer bulbs that I want to plant mid-late March and April. I also want to get a good thick mulch put down on all my beds and borders before the annual weeds (and slugs!) become active. Question: Should I mulch before planting the bulbs or plant the bulbs first? I know I could wait and plant the bulbs later but if the weather is good, I'd like to get them in as I have a fairly heavy schedule of other commitments coming up in April/May.
