Planting blub plants close together

Dillan Murphy

If I plant bulb plants close together will the roots interlock and kill each other?

Are you asking if the roots will physically strangle one another? If so, I've not heard of this happening. In my experience, the roots will get tangled up, but this doesn't harm the plants. In fact, I've read aquatic plants use their roots to help aerate the soil. So, it would stand to reason that more plant roots in the soil would actually make for healthier plants (assuming no nutrient limitations or allelopathy).
