a few years ago i started planting various
beans on top of the tulip patches when the
plants start to die back.
i was curious if the added moisture from
watering the beans in to get them sprouted
and the increase in nitrogen would encourage
more rot in the tulip bulbs.
after a few seasons i'd say there hasn't
been a noticeable increase in rot troubles
and most of the tulips seem to be holding
