Planting over Daffodil bulbs
I have a new small bed that I filled with daffodil bulbs this past fall. I have heavy deer population and was planning to plant an annual this spring once the bulbs are done. I was hoping to plant wax begonias. Sadly most other annuals i tried got devoured by the deer and even my huge bed of begonias were eaten once they grew knee high but this bed is closer to my house so I am hoping that they will be safe if I start spraying when they get tall again.
The question: will the daffodil bulbs rot from the water that the begonias need? If so can anyone suggest another option. I was leaning towards annuals after the bulbs bc it's a very visible bed that I want to keep neat and be able to empty it in the winter. I know bulbs are cheap but this bed I had put some more unusual varieties of daffodils and I don't want to have to hunt them down every fall. Thanks in advance. Laura
