Raccoons are notorious for digging up plants and then just leaving them, and they often come out at night. Squirrels are also known for digging up plants, both to bury and retrieve food. Most animals can smell when the ground has been disturbed and likely assume something tasty has been hidden there. If the plants are dug up at night, however, it is most likely raccoons. Squirrels aren't nocturnal and do their digging during the day and mostly stick to freshly planted bulbs rather than plants.
