Gladiolas without a doubt. I like them so much that I bought a bag of 100 bulbs and planted them about 3 years ago. The first year most of them came up and bloomed, but the second year, only about half did. By the end of the 3rd year I had practically no gladiolas at all. Thinking I needed to start over with fresh bulbs, I headed out to prepare my flower bed before I went to purchase more bulbs. There, right in the middle of my giant gladiola patch was a squirrel munching away on one of the last remaining bulbs. I haven't figured out whether to go ahead and plant more, knowing that I will be sharing them with the squirrels, or is there a good squirrel repellant that won't really hurt squirrels? Or, maybe I can find a flower I like just as well that doesn't taste good to squirrels. Any suggestions?
