Q.What To Do With Shrubs/grasses Grown In Autumn When I Want To Plant Bulbs In Spring?
I am very new to gardening and I\’ve just put soil improver in and I\’m planning to plant some shrubs/grasses to look nice over autumn and winter. I\’d really like to plant bulbs in Feb/March time but will the shrubs/grasses just die and then I can\’t plant the bulbs, or do I need to dig them up and do something with them? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I\’m very new to this!

This is a general guide that will get you started into gardening:
That should read *can plant the bulbs!
