hello. I have a real conundrum which I am at a loss to solve. Earlier this year I planted up some nice new glazed pots with different varieties of Lily bulbs. The pots are on my patio in full sun (when it shines that is). They started showing signs of life then we were hit by some awful weather (heavy wind/rain) that seemed to last ages. I went to work as usual and the weather had been raining and very misty that day, came home to find something had dug up one of the pots. There was a terrible mess all over the patio, some of the bulbs had been eaten, and the rest were scattered over the slabs. I had to wait for a dry day before I could tidy the mess and replant what had been disturbed. All was quiet for about a week, and I noticed that several other pots had also been dug up exactly like the first one.
As I thought bulbs are poisonous, am confused as to what creature has been doing this. The only animals that pass through my garden are cats and foxes.
Thankfully, most of the plants grew ok and are now dying back but I did notice one of the smaller pots had been disturbed again yesterday.
What is doing this ???
