Squill

Bulbs


Anonymous added on November 13, 2014 | Answered

How can I prevent squirrels and rabbits from digging up bulbs (striped squill and snow bunch crocus) that I am going to plant? They only need to be planted about 3" deep. Thanks!

Other than adding some chicken wire over top of the planting area, slightly covering with soil and mulch, you may want to consider tactics that prevent these critters from coming to the area altogether.

Set a trap for the rabbits and squirrels. You can buy one of those live traps off of ebay for not too much and then you can release the critters someplace with plenty of woods or whatever habitat they live in.
