Hi- I've posted a photo of one of my tulips that has had this problem the past few weeks since it came up. I have other tulips near it so I'm assuming it's only the local slugs having their dinner (hopefully)? If anyone could confirm, many thanks!

looks like a disease of tulips called "Fire". This may develop later to become a serious disease of the buds and foliage. I am pretty certain it is not slug damage, however I have heard a gardening expert on radio describe the damage as being caused by mice.

Thanks Michael, I think I better pull it up though. If I don't, most likely will it spread?
