Me and My Bright Ideas!

October 6, 2011



I see that something has made a nice lunch out of one of the narcissus 'Tete-a-Tete' bulbs that I wrote of in my last post. So much for my theory that the squirrels/chipmunks wouldn't bother them.

I will take the advise of Jennifer of Three Dogs in a Garden and I'll dig them up and plant them deeper!

I'll keep ya posted! (Wish me luck...)

Why don't you go over to Tootsie's Blog to see what's going on on other gardens!

Happy Gardening.

  1. Oh no! I wonder who had the nerve to take a tete a tete as a snack! Good luck with them! :)

  2. Even the best laid plans...get ate up in this case. One fall I planted 100 Apricot tulips bulbs, next spring seven made it through. The villain was believed to be a mole. Good Luck with the others!

  3. Oh that makes me so mad. I have trouble with Squirrels on some bulbs too, or have in the past. I hardly do any spring ones anymore. Hope it works out better when they are planted deeper.

  4. So much for the theory that squirrels won't eat daffodil bulbs - if you're hungry, anything tastes good!
    I agree with the deeper planting method; some of my tulips must be half way to China but at least I still have them.

  5. OH those pesky squirrels..however I have heard if they eat daffodil bulbs they are poisionus will die...so maybe they got their just reward! Anyway I know they can be very destructive and have eaten quite a few of my flowers! Happy Fall!

  6. Hi Diane, Sorry that happened. Some people fashion cages out of wire for their bulbs. I've never tried it though. Good luck!

  7. Hi Diane,
    I hope the rest of your bulbs are safe after you replant them. Thanks for your comment on my blog.

  8. I hope the little vermine didn't get them all. I love my tete-a-tete daffodils.

  9. Oh, I hate that! I find myself planting all sorts of allium with my daffs, it seems to help keep them away, I guess the bulbs smell like garlic/onions??

  10. Making a cover of chicken wire and placing this over the bulbs is one suggestion. The bulbs grow up through the wire. Good luck, it is frustrating when battling against pests.

  11. Hahahaha...I've learned NEVER to underestimate the amount of trouble squirrels can cause :-)

  12. Dear Diane, I do hope you are successful with your second-time planting. The chicken wire really works for me. Can't wait to see your springtime photos. P. x

  13. Hi Diane, Those little furry devils! I sure hope my dig a bit deeper method works. Don't forget to pat down the earth to make it harder for the little beggars to reach for that delicious snack food.

  14. Ah those scoundrels! And so soon after planting. Never surrender, good luck with the replant!
