Answer: Squirrels don't like daffodils so that's why yours weren't bothered. It's almost impossible to keep squirrels from messing around with above ground plants like hosta but you can keep them away from your bulbs by planting as usual and then laying chicken wire over the top of the soil. You can disguise it by mulching over the top with compost or pine needles. The squirrels can't dig through the chicken wire but the bulbs will emerge and find a hole in which to grow. Wish I had other ideas for keeping the squirrels at bay. Best wishes with your garden!
