Any helpful advice about deterring squirrels from digging up bulbs. I've already opted for alliums as I've heard they dislike them but I can't give up on tulips as they're my favourite plant.



Remove the top inch of soil, cover the bulbs with a fine metal mesh and replace the soil. You could also put some prickly prunings where they are as a nodded deterrent.

Citrus. I'm always making fresh lemonade & the used lemons go into the vegetable bed and the squirrels won't go there. (see my blogs if you want the recipe)
