How can you stop local squirrels, thieves of border bulbs?                     

Squirrels seek tulips by smell and to put them off you can plant the bulbs considerably deeper in the ground than normal. You can also place a piece of medium-gauge chicken wire horizontally over groups of bulbs as you earth them up so as the wire is invisible (about 20cm under the soil).
