I love this product, I plan to buy more.
from Twelve Mile, IN
I used this product to naturalize my yard. I like the idea that it"s underground, so I don"t have to worry about having to mow around it. I wish this product came in different sizes.

Looking Forward to Tulips
from Gig Harbor, WA
It's really to soon to tell just how effective they will be, but am very excited to have new tulips in the spring.

About Me Getting Started
Last spring, I was dismayed to discover that local squirrels gorged themselves on my tulips. Planting bulbs in cages seems like to most humane way of preventing it. These cages are spacious and relatively easy to assemble. Though some of the closures were misaligned upon arrival, they were easy to bend into place. I'm looking forward to enjoying my flowers a little longer this coming spring!
oh so easy!!!

So easy to put together plus it keeps critters from eating my tulip bulb. The hard part is digging the hole.
Better quality than last year's version
By Rob the weatherman

These cages are very effective at keeping the bulbs away from the critters that are trying to get them. In my area, that includes squirrels, skunks, moles, gophers, mice, and deer. They tried... but gave up.

only protects from squirrels!

About Me Master Gardener
I was very excited to finally buy a product that would protect my bulbs. What I didn't realize was the cage does not work for smaller rodents, such as voles or mice. The grid allows them to pass through. I managed to lose 120 tulip bulbs even after using the cages. Now looking to add screening inside of the cages for next year. So if squirrels are your only pest, then go for it!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great idea! Would like smaller sizes.
from Chicago, IL (suburbs - Mt. Prospect)
This is an effective method of protecting bulbs, especially shallowly planted bulbs, from squirrels. However, I had trouble finding 12" square spots to use the cages. 4" and 6" sizes would be great additions!
My only hope!
from Corbin, KY
The bulb cages didn't snap together as easily as it looked but I was able to get them fairly tight. I can't really judge the effectiveness or durability until spring. I doubt many tulip bubls would survive without these cages.
Bulb cages, finally something that works
from Terra Alta, WV
Finally a product that really works to protect bulbs from being eaten by critters. I would like to see this product in a smaller version as well. It went together easily and looks sturdy enough to last for years. I'm sure it can be dug up and the bulbs replaced but I'm hoping I don't have to do that for a long time. I think the price could be a little lower and doing so would probably increase sales.
