Will spring bulbs planted under trees and other plants that receive quite a lot of water cause the bulbs to rot?
Bulbs prefer slightly dry conditions during their dormant period. If your soil drains well and you use restraint in watering, your bulbs should be OK. Soil that holds water after a rain can lead to rotten bulbs that quickly die. One advantage of planting bulbs within the root zone of trees is that the roots of the trees soak up excess moisture, leaving the bulbs dry through their summer dormant period.
