I finally planted all my bulbs last weekend. I was procrastinating a little on the crocuses because I had to cut and lay chicken wire down as well. I just wondered that, if I left no signs of there having been bulbs around (no papery coverings, etc) and all the soil in said bed had been recently disturbed/tilled, how do squirrels know that there would be tasty crocuses under the soil? The bulbs are already safe under chicken wire, but I was just wondering how the little thieves would know if one was extremely careful? Anyone else done for the fall? All I have left is to put some leaf mulch in the beds, but I have to wait for the leaves to fall, first! I find myself unable to wait, almost for spring. I want to see these bulbs in action! Also, do you think that it's too late to plant anything? I'm in Zone 5/6 and I have some miniature roses I have been toying with the idea of planting in the ground to go dormant, etc. Or is it too late in the season? Temps get down to low 40s and venture into upper 30s. No frost, and normal daytime highs are 50-60s.
