Gopher Proof Bulbs

Having Gopher problems?

At the Siskiyou District meeting on October 19th, 2011 David Sheehan will give us the straight scoop on Eradicating Gophers and Moles, but until then, I found online a list of bulbs which are said to contain a substance Gophers don’t like and won’t eat. They may shoulder them aside, but they won’t eat them.

Allium, Anemone, Daffodil, Freesia, Hyacinth, Ranunculus, Scilla, Dwarf Iris, Iris Reticulata, Fritilaria, Galanthus, Leycojum, Ornithonalum, Puschkinia, Lycoris, Muscari, Narcissus, Chinodosa, Arunthus.

Other bulbs can be planted in wire gophe-proof baskets.

Happy Planting,

  1. Hi, just spotted a typo in Carlotta’s great info “gophe-proof”. Perhaps she would like to know she gophed up 😉 Thanks for the very helpful info.
