Q.When I Plant Spring Bulbs This Fall, Is There Anything I Can Do To Prevent Squirrels From Eating Them?
I’m not sure what other details to provide. In the past some of my spring bulbs have not bloomed. I guessed that they were destroyed by squirrels or other animals, so I wondered if there was anything that could be put with the bulbs to prevent that. I know squirrels do not like hot stuff, so I wondered if sprinkling hot pepper on the bulbs woould help. There are no photos of this problem to upload.
