bulbs in raised beds?
I have purchased 70 tulip bulbs, in 7 varieties, early/mid/late. Most of them are for cutting. Can I plant them in the raised vegetable beds? They would be done flowering before the tender tomatoes etc would go in. I have heard that they might not have enough protection from the frost/thaw cycle, but that hasn't seemed to affect the fall planted garlic.
My other option for the late ones would be under a huge POlareis rose bush by the driveway - there is usually snow piled there that doesn't really melt until April.
