Great Tip. I will do this as it is easier then standing outside with my sons paint ball gun looking for critters that think they are going to invade my dirt.:lol::lol::lol:Pink Pearl;541884 said:I don't lift my tulips. They are starting to come up now but are not yet ready to bloom. You may want to put some cayenne pepper in the hole and on top to stop squirrels from attacking and devouring your bulbs. It stops moles from eating their roots too.
If you plant bulbs, you can dust them in the cayenne, then put some in the bottom of the hole and also on top of the bulbs. It will discourage attacks on your bulbs.
