Hello everyone. I spent a lot of time and hard work making tulip beds around the perimeter of my home. But as we all know tulips have a short lifespan. They come up early then die. Rather than leaving those beds dormant I'd like to make good use of them and grow some corn. These beds I want to plant corn are perfect for corn. They face south, are up against the house and receive the most heat available in my zone 3b garden. My question is will I kill my tulips if I plant corn over them? Any advice would be appreciated.

I like the way that you are thinking...
As we can't hardly grow tulips here where it's so hot... I couldn't speak for their ability to survive being over-planted....

I do have some questions, though...
like, how deep are the bulbs planted?

What kind of soil work are you expecting to do before planting the corn?

Most people would go out there and till the soil... with a shovel or a plow... And, I can't imagine the tulips being ok with that...
