Landscaping with Bulbs

Dear All,

Thanks for all the wonderful responses everyone has written about 
landscaping with bulbs. We had some theory and practice as well and 
examples from a lot of different locations. I don't think anyone from the 
southern United States shared what worked there, but we did hear about some 
of the areas of the world that weren't covered in our regional discussions 

As I read I kept thinking it would have been nice to see some illustrations 
of what people were talking about. If there is interest in this we could 
always make a Landscaping with Bulbs wiki page for pictures.

Hamish, the California deer where I live are undeterred with most all of 
the folk remedies and the ones visiting my garden were especially attracted 
to some of the sprays meant to keep them away. Maybe the New Jersey deer 
are different.

When we first moved here I didn't want to have a fence so I tried all I 
read about first. We then fenced one area at a time until finally we did 
our whole property. We have had a couple visitors since. Twice was during 
the day when the gate is open and in the beginning we learned that deer can 
jump over 6 feet. But they seemed to have given up now. Other unknown 
creatures get under the fence (rabbits?) and the Crested Blue Vultures 
(Scrub Jays) and I continue to battle for my plant tags.
