I've read that blood meal will discourage squirrels from digging up my newly planted bulbs. But the guy at the garden center said I should try Bone meal instead as it will fertilize also. Well, now I'm reading that this will attract squirrels. I think the critters did mess with one spot I planted but in general, they seemed to stay away (probably because I left out some smooshed halloween pumpkins about 30 feet away for them to feed on). Was my garden center guy wrong? Also, it seems like the squirrels only mess with the newly planted bulbs, not the ones that have been in the ground for several years. Are they watching me plant them??
