Barry Buckley takes aim at the squirrel (“Yet another problem, St. Anthony Park: squirrels,” January 2016), apparently in dismay at the little critters digging up his bulbs. Despair not. Plant your bulbs as deeply as possible. Bulbs usually have a planting depth range, so aim for the lower limit. After planting your bulbs, get out the hose, not the watering can. Soak the planted area completely, sit back and enjoy.
