i know it is way too early but i have a question about planting bulbs. i have been looking through a mail order catalogue and that's got me thinking how many do i need? i am looking to plant bulbs in clusters throughout the garden. how many bulbs (mainly tulips and daffodils) should i plant per cluster (keeping in mind, i hear, that squirrels like them)?
also, speaking of squirrels, does the bloodmeal really work at keeping animals from eating the bulbs once in the ground?
