OH!! They ar kinda neat looking too! Thansk! I actually plant the bulbs with lotsa of bloodmeal (We're a veggie family so it was a bit backward to go that route.....but I was DESPERATE for something to work!! lol). This really does seem to help as the critters don't get the bulbs.....BUT once the plants are growing in the Spring, they start on the plants! Would this Fritallaria keep them from eating the plants, I wonder??? The rabbits are another story. sigh.
My biggest thing w/ the 'munks right now are that they go into the gardens and just dig holes randomly. It's like little "Chip" or "Dale" goes in and says...here's a great place to dig!! Then, changes his mind halfway and starts about a foot away!! I planted Dahlia tubers and Burberry bushes in these new border gardens by the stairs of our deck and they've dug holes around them!! ARGH!
