PVFS Customer question - Staff Response
I have a question regarding flowers we purchased last year. The flowers are 10 Ranunculus Tecolote. I planted they in the late fall, but only one has appeared so far. I wondered what I should do to get the others to come up. If you can help me I would appreciate it. Thanks Paula
I would gently dig the area to see if the bulbs are still there, trying not to disturb any new root hairs. Of course, they may have rotted or a rodent could have eaten them. Did you soak the bulbs first? If they are still there and hard little nuggets, you could soak them for a couple of hours and replant once they’ve swelled.
Hope this helps

My problem is squirrels - they eat at least 50% of the bulbs I plant. I have tried covering them in netting but they dig that up too.

Try planting the bulbs in cages of gopher wire that is folded over on the top that should stop them. Good luck!
