Something's been eating my bulbs

Not easily, no. There are scented compounds sold to water on to keep vermin away, but I have never used them so no recommendations to make.

Sow thinly, water from below and if you can get hold of some Copper sulphate water with that. If not then try gently dusting the soil surface with a little powdered cinnamon.

Squirrel or mice. They are the usual culprits. Try putting wire mesh across the top of the pots,just below soil level, so you cannot see it.

A bit bleak at the moment, but there are a few things in flower.

Sadly the rest of the flowers were eaten off by a mollusc.

Feeding Spring Bulbs

Recommendation is to feed them once they have finished flowering with a half strength low nitrogen feed, something like Tomorite.

Seeds of A. nemorosa can only really be got from someone who has them growing in their garden. Bought packeted seeds are dead.

Again, Anemone nemorosa is easy from green seed, sown fresh.
