tulips in raised bed gardens
Will tulips planted in raised bed gardens make it through winter, or likely freeze out.

It is likely they will freeze out. Tulips have to overwinter in dry soil. Dry soil freezes harder than wet so tulips are planted at a depth of about 8 inches and have a large mass of soil around them. You might try moving only half the bulbs. If we get snow cover that will protect them I wouldn’t expect them to survive for many years but the newer fancy varieties don’t survive for many years regardless.
