Its happened again!!
Last year a badger dug up all my tulips so I decided not to plant many this year. Last night I saw a fox in the garden and spent some time admiring it – it was a really handsome one and very close to the house. This morning found two of my containers with deep holes gouged out and the bulbs missing. In the large urn the daffodils and primroses were scattered and the few tulips that were deep underneath had been taken and compost scooped out onto the ground. I hope he doesn’t like chilli pepper, which is what’s waiting for him if he comes back to finish the job. (if the rain hasn’t washed it away) Next year I’m tempted to fasten some chicken wire over the tops of the containers. I didn’t know foxes did this.
