Hello! I planted a bunch of tulip bulbs last week and am now realizing (after reading online) that I shouldn't have planted the bulbs touching. Will they bloom even if the bulbs are touching? Has anyone had any luck with tulips & daffodils blooming even if the bulbs are touching? I'm considering digging them up and redoing them if need be.

They should bloom fine, after the foliage dies back in the summer you can always dig them up and replant. Daffodils will bloom fine, but after a few years with them being crowded the blooms will reduce, again all you have to do is wait until the foliage dies down (turns yellow) than redig and replant.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
