When you dig the hole for your tulips, you might set either a small wire or plastic mesh basket or cage in the hole first. Then put your tulip bulbs in the basket/cage and fill in the hole. The mesh basket/cage should stop critters from getting to the bulbs from the bottom or sides. The tulip roots should be able to grow fine through the mesh. Good luck 'n enjoy!
