Will 2,4-D kill tulip bulbs?

Answer:

If  you are asking about Fertilome Weed free Zone with 2,4 D the label suggests the the product will harm ornamentals. Part of the label shown below:

  Do not allow spray drift onto Vegetables, Flowers, Ornamental Plants, Shrubs,
Trees and other desirable plants since injury may result.
• Do not exceed specified dosages for any area. Be particularly careful within
dripline of trees and other ornamental species.
• Do not apply as a fine mist because of potential injury to desirable plants.

We recommend to contact the master gardener for a product recommendation that works in your area to safely treat around the tulips.  Here is the link http://www.csrees.usda.gov/Extension/index.html
