Plant Daffodils To Prevent Pests

If you are having trouble with something eating your flower bulbs, try planting daffodils around your flower bulbs. Daffodils are toxic to mice and voles. Worked great for me.

Just be wary about planting them in moist areas where you have ANY previous signs of slugs. They will eat your bulbs to nothing and leave you wondering what happened to your investment. Slugs can devour hundreds of bulbs without seemingly leaving a trace.

According to my grandfather in law, a long time flower farmer, squirrels will stay away from daffodils as well. He advised me to plant them after I complained that the squirrels had eaten all my tulip bulbs.
