My garden was much fuller with bulbs this year thanks to a planting tip from Tovah Martin. As you might remember, I threw a handful of chicken grit with each bulb as I planted them last October. I'll bet about 85% of my bulbs survived the winter, safe from the hungry jaws of voles and chipmunks. I have already begun adding chicken grit around susceptible perennials when I am planting and/or dividing them. Thanks to Tovah for a useful pointer!
