The best deterrent to squirrels is a Jack Russell.

I lost 50 cobs one year, but the squirrels detached them and either sat on the fence eating them, or dragged them off into the wood to a drey. If they are still on the plant, it might be a smaller rodent.

Bulbs

New bulbs should always flower the first year,so long as they are big enough. The flower is already there, it just needs to grow. Second year depends on how the bulb has been treated after flowering.

Bulbs

I have had expensive bulbs, and cheap bulbs.

Lidl bulbs did really well this year. Gladioli at 15 for £1 unbeatable.

Taylors bulbs from the garden centre did well, and also cheap bulbs from Parkers.

I find that the bigger the better, they have to be firm, and no signs of mould.  Then its up to you.
