I'm not sure, but there are plenty of ground squirrels around here that
could easily climb up onto my winter bulb benches and eat my Lachenalia if
they so desired, and they don't. They do climb up and eat the cacti.
Lachenalia are in family Hyacinthaceae which features many poisonous
genera. Any obnoxious neighbors you could test some on? (That was a joke,
those of you who are hypersensitive.)
