 I don't seem to have a problem with gophers eating my eucomis either.
 This brings up an off-subject question for some us newbies. Is there any
kind of list, that has been published, of gopher, vole, ground squirrel,
'proof'  garden bulbs; common and exotic?
 I'm sure the list is limited, but I have a problem area. After every
eradication another family moves in. In the past 10 years this area probably
is critter free about only 2 months of every year. I do grow Narcissus,
watsonias, some Glads and Morea and Irids,  in this area, with some success.
I would like to use the area to plant more bulbs, basically because the soil
is  perfect naturally for many species.

(where we have had a nasty frost recently, much superficial damage. Nerines
taking it like a champ still in glorious bloom. No sign of any unusual out
of season bloom. Of course I've only been here 10 years. My experience is a
drop in the bucket in the whole scheme of things.)
