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.

Feeding Spring Bulbs

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