Bark chips and bulbs

Hi I recently turfed this area, added a few plants and some bulbs. I was wondering if I could use bark chips without preventing the bulbs coming through? The bulbs were a mix of large like tulips but also some smaller ones like snowdrops. Any ideas?

    Bulbs will force their way through most things but Tulips like a summer baking in the sun and snowdrops are woodland plants

    I think they will be fine. Snowdrops are notorious for not being very energetic when planted from dry bulbs so don't be too disappointed when/if you only get a few flowers.
