I have an old sewing machine on my porch with various pots on and around it. I put crocus bulbs in the little drawers on the front and they flowered. This morning I noticed a pot had been knock off and the crocuses had been attacked. Most were pulled out and lying on the floor and the flowers had been eaten. We are in the country close to fields and woods at the foot of the Mendips. Which animal is most likely to have done this. Only the crocuses were touched.



Could be squirrels. - or badgers.

Do you think if I put some crocus corms outside that it would keep the mice from coming in and attacking my paper recycling bag?

Mice are very tempted by a tasty crocus ...
... and even more so by an irresistible paper recycling bag....

Might do Wagger but probably not... and could get expensive!
