Simple Tips To Keep Deer From Eating Spring Bulbs
It's time to plant spring bulbs! Not only are you excited about it, there are quite a few animals looking for an easy meal that are happy too. Tulip and Crocus bulbs are the animals favorite. Use the three tips below to help keep animals out of your garden. If you remember these tips this fall while planting your flower bulbs you should have a garden free of unwanted guests.
TIP 1: Clean up your area after you are done planting. Animals like the smell of things like bulb bags and bulb skins, so clean up the area and you will be critter free. This should be a no-brainer. It is never a good idea to leave plant debris around as it encourages diseases and pests, and in this case, even larger animals.
TIP 2: Plant Fritillaria bulbs with Tulip and Crocus bulbs. Animals actually do not like the smell of fritillaria and will stay away. Easy to grow in moist well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Uniquely scented to help you keep animals away from the garden. If you are not familiar with Fritillaria, it has a unique appeal due to the delicate shapes and unusual shades of their flowers. These downward-facing blossoms are bell-like, saucer-like, or tubular, some with leafy tufts. It is available in a multitude of colors.
TIP 3: Plant flower bulbs that animals do not like to eat. There are many to choose from, but the most popular ones are Alliums, Daffodils and Hyacinths.
