I live in Dallas Texas and planted tulips for the first time. I’m so excited they have broken ground this week but seem to have something eating the leaves. What do I do?

It actually looks like shothole fungus! Make sure to apply dolomitic lime and wettable sulfur together and at least once per year. This is a multipurpose treatment that will take care of fungal infections, supplement calcium, magnesium, carbon, and sulfur, and keep the pH of the soil stable. Remove affected leaves and destroy them.
