Protect your Blooms from Widlife

If there is one thing that can be heartbreaking to a gardener, it’s coming outside to see a garden full of eaten plants. Living in the Denver area, you have to be careful about deer, rabbits, elk, and voles chowing down on your beautiful bulbs. However, there’s no need to breakout the hunting gear to keep your gorgeous garden from being devoured. You simply need to choose the right bulbs.

Take a look at a few bulbs that are less likely to be on the menu for your neighborhood wildlife:
