Protecting Bulbs from Hungry Critters
We have some voracious rabbits in early spring that love to sample the leaf sprouts from our spring bulbs. If I'm lucky, they will eat the entire plant and flower (sarcasm) especially tulips. I will be planting a fair amount of new bulbs this fall and was wondering if there was something I could put in the soil that would deter their plant menacing. Someone told me that if you put cayenne pepper in the hole with the bulb as you're planting it then the animals will leave it alone when it sprouts. Does anyone know if this is true or perhaps could offer alternative advice? Thanks so much!
