Actually 2 questions........are my alliums that I ordered for this fall going to be safe from the squirrels, moles & voles? I don't notice any of my garlic disappearing this spring. Can't say the same for the lillies. Also, I have Kettle River Giant Garlic that I had for planting last year....I tried eating some that looked good and smelled good, but it tastes very bitter. Is it because of the type or is it too old?

RE: nuther allium question

So far, I haven't had any problems with moles and squirrels trying to eat my onions, shallots or garlic. Of course, I do have a cat that has essentially depopulated the moles over the past three years though the squirrels (and most of the chipmunks) still elude him. Sometimes though I wish he wasn't so darn efficient since my lilies are spreading like wild and there's going to be a battle royale between the lilies and Jerusalem Artichokes this season!
