Hello, this may seem like a silly question, but I'm planting a new border and have put down weedproof membrane covered with landscape bark to cover the bare areas between the shrubs and perennials. I want to plant some tulips but it occurred to me that if the membrane stops weeds growing, will it not also prevent the tulips from coming up to the surface (even though I will have cut crosses in it in order to plant them)? Will I need to cut larger holes above where each tulip is planted in order to allow them to grow? I put the membrane down first because weeds were still coming through the bark in another area of the garden, and also I gather that you shouldn't allow the bark to be incorporated into the soil. Is this true? Many thanks.

Hello, Yes, if you plant tulip bulbs you will need to provide an unobstructed way for them to come up through the membrane. As for the bark, if the chippings are fresh, they will draw out nitrogen from the soil so are best avoided, however older chips are fine to come in direct contact with the soil.

Tulip Fire

Tips of emerging leaves appear brown and scorched, and often shrivel and rot. The foliage soon becomes covered in a grey fungus. Brown spots appear on the leaves and flowers, which may also rot.

Tips for your tulips

The most useful garden tulips arrive in the second half of April or in May, after most of the daffodils have flowered. For this reason it’s a good idea not to mix the two because by the time your tulips flower, the daffodils will be past their best.
