I love tulips, but those of us who have heavy deer pressure have to be careful because tulips are a whitetail's absolute favorite snack. Sometimes I plant them right up against the house or in containers, but I don't think I've ever actually planted them in my raised beds. When I did my layout and planting dates for next year I realized that I have a couple of beds that I won't need to plant until July 1st. Well that would be a perfect spot for tulips! I can enjoy them in the garden and I won't feel as bad about cutting them and bringing them into the house as I do when they are in the landscape.
