Poultry grit question???

Has anyone ever used this in the planting hole while planting their bulbs? If so how did it work and how much did you use? Thanks in advance, Judy

Per the link below, it says, ". For improved drainage add grit or sand (sharp sand, not builders sand, which compacts)."

and
* Add a handful of sharp grit to the holes when planting tulips and other bulbs to prevent voles from tunneling up.

Thanks for the link Sue. I read on there that voles hate daffodils so I will be planting plenty of them too. Judy
