Mole/Vole protection for tulips-Handmade metal cages?

summerstar(Z7VA)June 18, 2011

I'd like to give tulips a try here in Central VA, but there are voles from time to time in our garden. I want to protect the bulbs when I plant them.

I heard that you can put metal mesh around the bulbs to stop voles. Has anyone done this? I'd appreciate your ideas.

The longest lasting baskets are made out of 1/2 inch hardware cloth, available everywhere. I use "hog rings" to put the baskets together. Any good hardware will have these also. Buy a kit including the pliers, they are not expensive. Al
