Hi everyone….it’s my first post. I have been gardening since I was a small boy in Iowa. Now I slowly and surely try to recapture the gardens of my father and grandmother in Ridgefield, CT. Thank god I have discovered this wonderful and informative website/blog. I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with the blog and each of you.
My crocus came up a couple months back just as the bulb catalog said they would. Pretty white, purple and yellow flowers said hello and good bye and now the slender, green leaves remain to remind me of my "spring is coming" wake up call. However, each day I walk out to see "holes" in the crocus area, each about three/four inches deep. They also appear to be perfectly round, which could just be my imagination as I look at the holes in a panic and try to decide who is the culprit. To me, it looks like something (let’s hope it is not someone) is digging into the soil, then grabbing and eating the crocus bulbs. What would do this to me?
If anyone knows, can you let me know? Also, any way to stop the madness? I appreciate your help. Thanks………….
