Caring for Spring Bulbs in Flower Beds Over Summer

Anonymous added on May 6, 2011 | Answered

I live in southern California and had successfully enjoyed spring bulbs in our plant beds. All the bulbs are now done sprouting. I now want to try and plant summer vegatables in the same flower bed and need to know how to cut back the bulbs without hurting them. Do I plant around them, and how would I do that without hurting them? I want to try and plant tomatoes.

I would simply plant over them once the foliage has faded away. As long as you don't plant too deeply, and these plants don't require deep planting anyway, your bulbs should be fine. If you are worried about them, you could also choose to plant your veggies in an area near your bulbs rather than right over top of them.
