tulips are GONE!! Can they recover
I've been growing giant red tulips for about 3 years. The rabbits and deer have eaten several things in my yard, but the tulips are usually never touched, so I never critter proofed them.
I just went outside and they are absoltuely GONE!!! Chewed very cleanly to the soil--clearcut. I beleive this damage all happened in one night and I am blaming the deer, but wondering if was a rabbit (although what rabbit could clear a tulip patch in one sitting??!!).
Anywho, I am heartbroken. I am at the end of my rope as my garden hs been destroyed this winter and now this.
The stems weren't up yet-but the foliage was almost fully up. Will they recover?? If so, I'll spray some repellent on them but if they dont' stand a chance, I won't waste my money.
