Planting bulbs can really enhance your landscaping. Use a little bone meal to help fertilize each bulb (place about a teaspoon full under each bulb).
That works great, unless there are dogs around. I planted over 100 bulbs one Saturday and got up Sunday morning to face 100 bulbs that my dogs dug up! Dogs love bone meal.
After some thought, I replanted the bulbs. Most of them were not hurt. I collected some of my dogs feces and mixed them with the bone meal. The dogs lost all interest. They smelled the feces in the ground and ignored the bulbs. They left them all alone. I had beautiful flowers.
